In May 2012, Anthony Hewitt cycled 1200 miles from Land's End to John O'Groats for charity. As if that weren’t enough of an epic challenge in itself, at the end of each gruelling day he gave a piano recital, performing some of the works featured on this CD. From market squares and concert halls at prestigious festivals, Anthony raised over £13,000, and captivated and enchanted his audience from the back of his ‘BeethoVan’ en route
