Anthony Hewitt PIANO

Anthony Hewitt has won prizes at International Piano Competitions, and his communicative performances have earned him critical acclaim worldwide as a recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician. Career highlights include engagements with the National Symphony and Princeton Symphony Orchestras in the USA, and the English Chamber Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and Northern Sinfonia in the UK.

Anthony’s discography includes Protégé (Divine Art Records) - the first coupling on a CD of the Liszt and Reubke Sonatas - which was praised in International Record Review as “magisterial” and received a Gramophone recommendation. He has recorded for Naxos with violist Sarah-Jane Bradley, and The Gramophone described the duo’s recent performance on a disc of music by British composer Peter Fribbins as “superb”.

An avid chamber musician, he is a member of Dimension Trio - winner of the prestigious Parkhouse award - who have received invitations to festivals and orchestras in the UK and abroad, including the Brighton Philharmonic and Lodz Philharmonic respectively. He performs regularly with distinguished artists such as clarinettist Emma Johnson and cellist Thomas Carroll, and has a two-piano duo with Martin Roscoe, with whom he recently shared a cycle of complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas. He is also an official accompanist at the Lionel Tertis Viola Festival, held in Port Erin, on the Isle of Man.

Recent highlights were four appearances at major venues in London including near sell-outs at the Royal Festival Hall and a solo Coffee Concert at Wigmore Hall, as well as the Armenian première of the Britten Piano Concerto. His most unusual feat in 2012 was in the guise of the ‘Olympianist’ which saw him cycling 1200 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats, followed by a concert at the end of each day. He performed over thirty engagements and raised £13,000 for charity. His special-edition CD Piano Odyssey was broadcast several times on Classic FM, and he also appeared twice on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In-Tune’.

Anthony is the founding Artistic Director of the Ulverston International Music Festival and is based in South-West London from where he enjoys cycling into the Surrey Hills.
