Since her youth, Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt has devoted herself with great passion and conviction to the keyboard works of Johann Sebastian Bach. She has long since recorded all his keyboard works and enchants audiences all over the world in innumerable concerts. For this great service to Bach’s legacy, Angela Hewitt will receive the Bach Medal in 2020. In her luggage to Leipzig, she will be bringing along the Goldberg Variations – that exceptional work by Johann Sebastian Bach of which Angela Hewitt herself has said: »There are few pieces in the keyboard literature that take us to such sublime regions.«
