The first International Angela Hewitt Piano Masterclass was held in 2010, at the Auditorium Marianum in Perugia (the masterclass was a promotion of the Trasimeno Music Festival Association). Young pianists (aged 18 to 30) were asked to prepare a huge programme (that already demanded a certain level), and they went through vast amounts of repertoire during a whole week of intense study.
The second Angela Hewitt International Masterclass took place in Spoleto in July 2014, four years after the previous one. Ten gifted young pianists from around the world (Australia, Taiwan, Israel, France, USA, Italy, Ukraine, and Canada) joined Angela for a week of lessons covering a huge amount of repertoire. The final concert given by the students in the Church of San Salvatore in Spoleto was a memorable occasion.
The third Angela Hewitt International Masterclass was held in Perugia, again, at the Auditorium Marianum, from July 8 to 12, 2016. Young pianists from around the world were ready to study and perform a demanding and vast amount of repertoire for a week, and at the end of the Masterclass their final concert was held at the Teatro Mengoni in Magione.
Angela Hewitt’s busy concert schedule allows her to plan and organize such events only every two or four years.
Stay tuned for the next one!
