Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Her [Hewitt's] playing is absolutely captivating: she decorates the solo part with playful, come-hither ornamentation - twirls, flutters, arabesques - and yet it never disturbs the clear, logical path she forges through the course of each work. Her staccato touch has the force of sprung steel and yet her legato line is a miracle of smoothness and transparency. An absolute joy." - Gramophone

Winner of the 2009 Midem Classical Award for Artist of the Year - Instrumental.
