 Update me on new releases by Hough

Stephen Hough (b1961)

Hough had three main teachers during his formative years. Heather Slade-Lipkin was his first teacher, then at Chetham’s School he studied with Gordon Green, with whom he continued at the Royal Northern College of Music. After Green retired due to ill health, Hough continued at the RNCM with Derrick Wyndham who was a great influence, particularly in matters technical. For his final period of study Hough went to New York’s Juilliard School where he worked with Adele Marcus and Martin Canin. After his London debut, he won several prestigious prizes and made his debut in New York in 1984. Hough is one of the few English pianists who has maintained a high international profile, and over the last twenty years he has played with all the major orchestras of the world including the London Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, Philharmonia, Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia, Cleveland and many others. He frequently tours America and Canada, gives recitals in many European capitals and often plays in Japan. He has played at all the major festivals including Edinburgh, the Proms, Salzburg, Ravinia, Aspen, Tanglewood and Mostly Mozart.

Although Hough’s repertoire is essentially Romantic, he favours unusual works and has premièred contemporary music such as the Piano Concerto No. 2 by Lowell Lieberman which was dedicated to him. He has an affinity with nineteenth-century music by the great composer-pianists, having an understanding of the style as well as the technique to ensure that physical difficulties and demands are never apparent.
