In our National Capital it's Angela Hewitt Week, 14-20 May 2012

The Mayor of our National Capital Ottawa has proclaimed the week of 14-20 May, Angela Hewitt Week. The world famous pianist is a native of Ottawa and she will be playing a series of concerts at the National Arts Centre.
We are going to see her. We had the good fortune to meet her in person at a private event at Le Café a few months ago, she is absolutely charming. Hyperion is releasing her latest CD of Schumann piano concerto 2 weeks ahead of schedule in Ottawa only. Angela Hewitt made her professional debut as a pianist at the age of 9.

Here she is playing Les barricades Mystérieuses by François Couperin.
