I am a huge fan of Angela Hewitt but the world really didn’t need yet another recording of these concertos. I bought it anyway. It’s gorgeous.

Composer: J.S. Bach
Title: The Well-Tempered Clavier
Performer: Angela Hewitt

This is a stunning recording of some of the most beautiful music ever written.

This is the second version released by pianist Angela Hewitt.  She recorded the Well-Tempered Clavier back in the 90’s but then, after a world tour performing it, she went back into the studio and recorded it again.  And what a good idea that was!

All her recordings are gorgeous but her approaching this recording with the experience of knowing the pieces so intimately after a world tour is truly inspiring.  The music itself is some of the most complex ever written but listening to it still brings a feeling of peace and happiness to me.  Her performance is perfection.

There are a zillion recordings of these works and there are some pretty ugly ones out there.  Along with one of my faves, Andras Schiff, this recording by Angela Hewitt remains at the top of my list of must-haves.
