Anthony Hewitt is regarded as one of Britain’s most gifted pianists, and, since winning the prestigious William Kapell Competition in Washington D.C., has enjoyed a prolific performing career spanning two decades, including concerto appearances with the National Symphony Orchestra in the USA, and the English Chamber Orchestra at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
He has given recitals at Wigmore Hall and received critical acclaim for recordings on Naxos, Divine Art, and Champs Hill Records, and recently recorded for Decca.
