Angela Hewitt's Bach Book For Piano

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes

Leading Bach pianist Angela Hewitt has assembled a new book of music paying tribute to the ultimate Baroque master.

The new Bach Book is a successor to Harriet Cohen’s dating from 1932, collecting arrangements from leading composers of her day which Cohen then toured in concert. Hewitt’s book includes two of the original arrangements - by Walton and Howells - together with her own transcriptions of three organ chorale preludes from Bach’s Orgelbüchlein and six new works commissioned by the Wigmore Hall from contemporary composers Brett Dean, Robin Holloway, Elena Kats-Chernin, Dominic Muldowney, Kurt Schwertsik, and Yehudi Wyner.
