Angela Hewitt: Bach & Mozart Extravaganza!
For one night only, Ottawa’s darling piano virtuoso Angela Hewitt returns to Chamberfest ready to wow. As “one of those rare musicians who … get something into their heads and hearts and find it at their fingertips instantaneously,” (The New York Times) Angela Hewitt is pure expressive joy. Hewitt combines forces with Chamberfest Artists-in-Residence and the Chamberfest Festival Orchestra to present Mozart’s Woodwind Quintet and Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, featuring violinist Jessica Linnebach and flutist Joanna G’froerer. Finally, Chamberfest pulls out all the stops for Mozart’s epic Concerto for Three Pianos, interpreted by Hewitt, Silvie Cheng, and Katherine Dowling. Don’t miss this performance of seldom-heard works by stellar musicians; this combination will never be seen again!
