Born in Canada, now based in London, Angela Hewitt is "the preeminent Bach pianist of our time" (The Guardian). As a best-selling recording artist for Hyperion, she set a new benchmark for the complete Bach keyboard works. Now Hewitt brings her expertise to Duke Performances, with two of Bach's wonderful French Suites and the showpiece Toccata in D Major, entwined with Debussy's dreamy sonorities for solo keyboard. Performing with consummate decisiveness, Hewitt never fails to "imbue every musical moment with an unrelenting sense of theater" (NY Times). *** PROGRAM: BACH: French Suite No. 6 in E Major ; BACH: Toccata in D Major, BWV 912 ; DEBUSSY: Pour le Piano ; BACH: French Suite No. 5 in G Major ; DEBUSSY: Suite Bergamasque ; DEBUSSY: L'Isle Joyeuse
