Overview

Stephen Hough has a unique affinity for the music of Chopin, whose music has always been a central part of his repertoire. His earlier Chopin recordings for Hyperion garnered huge critical acclaim. Hough’s name has become synonymous with pianistic elegance, flawless technique, and immense musicianship, and he has become globally renowned for his engaging and refined Chopin interpretations.

In his Waltzes, Chopin brought a new level of sophistication to this popular dance form. The disc is rounded off with the famous E-flat major Nocturne, which gives a more lyrical expression to the meter of the waltz. These illuminating and compelling performances are not to be missed.
