Angela Hewitt – a familiar visitor to Australia and a highly represented recording artist (she has recorded the complete Bach keyboard works for Hyperion) – made this, an early recording, for Deutsche Grammophon upon winning the 1985 Toronto International Bach Piano Competition. They are natural, unforced and beautifully-turned performances of some of Bach’s most popular keyboard works. Having long been out of the catalogue, they now make a welcome return.

‘[Hewitt’s] playing is enormously alive and stimulating…These are exhilarating performances’ *** Penguin Guide

‘I know of no musician whose Bach playing on any instrument is of greater subtlety, beauty of tone, persuasiveness of judgement or instrumental command than Hewitt’s is here’ BBC Music Magazine

‘…justly weighted, technically controlled and eloquent’ MusicWeb

‘subtly proficient at emphasizing different voices… The sound quality is excellent, the piano sounding brilliant and clear within a spacious acoustic’ Fanfare

Italian Concerto in F major, BWV 971
Toccata in C minor, BWV 911
