Stephen Hough has won global acclaim for his outstanding performances on the concert platform and on CD.  Named by The Economist as one of ‘20 Living Polymaths’, he is also a successful writer, composer and painter.   His virtuosic programme revolves around themes of death, darkness and transcendence. Hough’s own newly-premiered Sonata no. 4 (Vida Breve) stands alongside Chopin’s monumental Sonata no. 2, with its famous 'Marche funèbre', a triptych of Faustian and funereal works by Liszt, and Busoni’s transcription of Bach’s visionary Chaconne.
