Pianist Angela Hewitt is set to be awarded the Wigmore Medal in a ceremony on 2 June 2020. The medal will be presented immediately after the final concert of her Bach Odyssey – a four-season survey of the composer’s complete keyboard works, across 12 concerts, which began in 2016. Her next performance of the Odyssey will be at Wigmore Hall on 28 March.

The Canadian pianist has given over 80 performances at Wigmore Hall since her debut back in 1985. It has been a mainstay venue throughout her career. The Wigmore Medal will be awarded to Hewitt in the same year that she receives the City of Leipzig Bach Medal – the first woman and only the second pianist to receive the award.

Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms!

Coined by Peter Cornelius in 1854, which refers to Bach, Beethoven, and Berlioz.

Later in the century, the famous conductor Hans von Bülow would substitute Johannes Brahms for Berlioz.

Bülow had been attracted to the idea of a sort of Holy Trinity of classical music for a number of years, writing in the 1880s: "I believe in Bach, the Father, Beethoven, the Son, and Brahms, the Holy Ghost of music".
