One of the world’s leading pianists, Angela Hewitt appears in recital and with major orchestras throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. Her interpretations of Bach have established her as one of the composer’s foremost interpreters of our time.

Angela Hewitt’s award-winning cycle for Hyperion Records of all the major keyboard works of Bach has been described as ‘one of the record glories of our age’ (The Sunday Times). Her much-awaited recording of Bach’s Art of Fugue appeared in 2014, and immediately hit the charts in the UK and USA. Her discography also includes albums of Couperin, Rameau, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Liszt, Fauré, Debussy, Chabrier, Ravel, and Granados. With conductor Hannu Lintu she has recorded two albums of Mozart Piano Concertos (the most recent one with the National Arts Centre Orchestra won a Juno Award in Canada), the Schumann Piano Concerto with the DSO Berlin, and Messiaen’s Turangalila Symphony with the Finnish Radio Symphony. New releases include her first disc of Scarlatti Sonatas, and her sixth volume of Beethoven Sonatas (including ‘Les Adieux’). In 2016, Angela Hewitt was inducted into Gramophone Magazine’s ‘Hall of Fame’ thanks to her popularity with music lovers around the world. Her second recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations was released in September 2016. Named ‘Artist of the Year’ at the 2006 Gramophone Awards, she was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in the same year. In 2015 Angela was promoted to a Companion of the Order of Canada. She is a member of the Royal Society of Canada, has seven honorary doctorates, and is an Honorary Fellow of Peterhouse.

COVID guidance (applicable for all Respiratory Communicable Diseases)

Updated March 2022

COVID remains prevalent in the UK and WRCH has a duty to ensure all those entering the building – including audiences, performers, volunteers, and staff – are kept safe. Whilst domestic government COVID restrictions in England have now been removed, we must all continue to take steps to minimise the transmission of COVID and other respiratory communicable diseases.

West Road is well equipped to mitigate against transmission through use of ventilation and provision of sanitiser throughout the building.

  • We ask all those visiting the building to contribute to our community’s safety by being fully vaccinated where possible and not attending if they feel unwell.
  • Although not currently mandated, the government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
  • Sanitiser dispensers are located in the foyer and around the building. All visitors are encouraged to use these on arrival and exit.
  • The concert hall auditorium has a mechanical ventilation system providing predominantly fresh air. We recommend wearing an additional layer in cooler weather!
  • The foyer and ancillary spaces have CO2 monitors to indicate air quality and natural ventilation that users can adjust.
  • Official advice on how to stay safe and help prevent the spread of coronavirus is available here.

If you have any concerns about the concert hall reopening please contact us on wrch@mus.cam.ac.uk
