Described by Gramophone magazine as “a remarkably gifted artist”, Anthony Hewitt’s communicative and virtuosic pianism has won him many plaudits worldwide as a recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician.

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 U.S.A., and the English Chamber Orchestra at London’s Royal Festival Hall. He has given eight recitals at Wigmore Hall and received critical acclaim for recordings on Naxos, Divine Art, and Champs Hill Records, and recently recorded for Decca.

He enjoys a diverse musical life as festival director, professor of piano at Birmingham Conservatoire, and chamber musician; the latest CD of his trio (Dimension Piano Trio), was described in The Sunday Times as “played with a rare richness and depth”.

In 2012 he gained the admiration of the music world and beyond by cycling 1200 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats and giving a concert every night, raising over £13,000 for charity.
