Sir Stephen Hough
Saturday, November 30, 2024 - 7:45 pm

One of the most distinctive artists of his generation, Sir Stephen Hough combines a distinguished career as a pianist with those of composer and writer. Named by The Economist as one of Twenty Living Polymaths, Sir Stephen was made a CBE in 2014 and was knighted in 2022.

Since taking first prize at the 1983 Naumburg Competition in New York, Sir Stephen has appeared with most of the major European, Asian and American orchestras and plays recitals regularly around the world. His appearance at the 2024 Last Night of the Proms marks his 31st appearance at the world’s largest classical music festival.

His catalogue of recordings stands at over 60 albums. Many have claimed international prizes including several Grammy nominations and the Gramophone ‘Gold Disc’ Award in 2008. Sir Stephen’s 2005 live recording of the Rachmaninoff Piano Concertos was the fastest selling
recording in Hyperion’s history.

This is a very special opportunity to hear a master of interpretation in the intimate surroundings of Parbold’s venue. Alongside works by Chaminade, Schumann and Chopin, Sir Stephen performs one of his own compositions, his Sonatina Nostalgica.

"... a keyboard colossus … simply breathtaking.” - The Guardian
