Stephen Hough, Piano
From the venue:
A MacArthur Fellowship "genius grant" honoree, British pianist Stephen Hough "is a profound thinker as well as a mercurial performer" (The Times). "Few living pianists manage to combine open-hearted virtuosity with so tangible and unaffected a sense of an inner world beyond the notes" (The Arts Desk).
"Always finding the beauty and the poetry in every passing note" (Pianist Magazine), "Hough is master of all he surveys, combining technical elan with deeply satisfying musical insights" (The Sunday Times).
"Elevation and luminosity, the art of sonority, overwhelming virtuosity...the fingers of Stephen Hough are pure gold" (Le Monde).
