Overview

The Stephen Hough discography is enhanced by this delightful recital disc from the winner of the Gramophone Gold Disc Award, acclaimed recently as “Britain’s finest pianist” (Sunday Times) and as one of the six greatest pianists performing in the world today (The Guardian). The selection of works reflects a concert programme which Hough performed all round the world in the 2007/8 season, with a theme of Variations and Waltzes. These appear in many guises: for instance the first half concludes with Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 32, with its extraordinary set of variations. Then Hough takes the listener on a whirlwind tour of the waltz, performing some of the gems of the genre with his trademark immaculate polish and unerring style. From the Label
