Stephen Hough


‘The most perfect piano playing conceivable’ The Guardian

Debussy La plus que lente
Chopin Ballades 1, 2, 3 & 4
Debussy Children’s Corner
L’isle joyeuse

One of the pre-eminent pianists of our time, Stephen Hough performs an exquisite programme that juxtaposes vivid Impressionism, poetry and drama. Chopin’s immortal Ballades – immense in their emotional reach and musical intensity – provide a powerful centrepiece for this recital.

Around them is a gallery of Debussy’s pianistic pictures: scenes in Japan, Spain and France in Estampes, a child’s world of toys, imagination and study in Children’s Corner and a mythical Rococo fantasy in L’isle Joyeuse.
