APA Sound Advice: Angela Hewitt at the Music Hall

Interested in trying something new in Aberdeen but not quite sure what to expect? We're here to help! We've spoken to those in the know about the shows coming to our venues to tell you all about what makes seeing these performers live such a unique experience.

 

Discussing Angela Hewitt's upcoming performance at the Music Hall, Ben Torrie, Aberdeen Performing Arts' Director of Programming & Creative Projects said:

“I had heard Angela Hewitt live once before, playing Chopin’s First Piano Concerto with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, and also several recordings of her solo repertoire. Therefore, I knew she was very talented, and an engaging performer. However, I’ve never seen anything like her rendition of Bach’s Goldberg Variations in the Music Hall in November.

It was simply stunning, she put her heart and soul into it, and you can immediately see why she is heralded as the leading exponent of Bach’s keyboard music.

Her hands seem to float over the keys at times, and she brought out every little subtlety of the very demanding score. Having heard her pre-concert talk, which explained in detail her interpretation of each variation, it was the complete concert experience. I left the hall on a high that night, feeling like I had witnessed something truly world class. I can’t wait for her next visit in February.”
