Hailed by The New York Times as ‘arguably the finest, certainly the most intelligent and technically impressive British pianist on the circuit’, Stephen Hough is widely recognised as a modern-day Renaissance man – he is also a successful writer, composer and painter – whose questing spirit and intellectual curiosity inform his searching and insightful performances. This collection features definitive recordings of Hough in classics of the piano repertoire, from stylish Mozart to mercurial and witty Britten.
