Morning Light Host Michael Wolch's exclusive interview with award-winning Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt.

Angela Hewitt is one of the world's leading pianists and appears regularly with major orchestra throughout Eurpoe, The Americas and Asia. She was named artists of the year at the 2006 Grammophone Awards, made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2000, and was awarded an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours in 2006. Hewitt was born in Ottawa, but splits her time between her travels and her 3 homes in London, Italy and Ottawa.

In 2005 she launched her own yearly music festival the Trasimeno Music Festival in the heart of Umbria near Perugia. An annual event, it draws an international audience to the Castle of the Knights of Malta in Magione, on the shores of Lake Trasimeno. Seven concerts in seven days feature Hewitt as a recitalist, chamber musician, song accompanist, and conductor, working with both established and young artists of her choosing.
