Never miss another 'Stephen Hough' show
"In the writings of Paul Richter, Robert Schumann discovered a world of humanity turned inside out. Richter's varying images of human nature inspired Schumann's Carnaval, a series of kaleidoscopic pianistic portraits shaped by characters real, mythological and both. Stephen Hough negotiates their almost orchestral sonorities here alongside Brahms' majestic Third Piano Sonata and two of Chopin's most spellbinding Nocturnes. But the centrepiece is a sonata by Hough himself."

'Mr Hough became the latest champion of the [Dvorak Piano Concerto with]
crystalline, impeccably voiced playing... Brought an alluring warmth and lyricism to the slow movement' (New York Times)
'Schumann's Piano Concerto, with Stephen Hough as soloist... had been a performance of such startling freshness and clarity that one of the most familiar of all 19th-century piano concertos seemed totally re-imagined, with the CBSO as the perfect foil to Hough's cool brilliance' (The Guardian)
'The greatest living interpreter of the Rachmaninov concertos' (The Spectator)
'Pianist Stephen Hough provided the fireworks in the Liszt [1st concerto] a whiff of the demonic... a radiant, singing tone' (Washington Post).
