    Stephen Hough, piano

     Over a long distinguished career as one of the world’s leading concert pianists, Stephen Hough combines an exceptional facility and tonal palette with a uniquely inquisitive musical personality, and his musical achievements have resulted in many awards and accolades for his concerts and a discography of more than 50 recordings.  The first classical performing artist to win a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, he also won the Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist Award in 2010.  He has performed around the world in recitals, as a soloist with practically all the major European and American orchestras, as well as festivals including Aspen, Edinburgh, Mostly Mozart, Ravinia, Salzburg, Tanglewood, and the BBC Proms.


    A Hyperion recording artist, his recordings have garnered international prizes including the Diapason d’Or, several Grammy nominations, and eight Gramophone Magazine Awards including ‘Record of the Year,’ and the Gramophone ‘Gold Disc’ Award, which named his complete Saint-Saëns Piano Concertos as the best recording of the past 30 years.  As a composer, his compositions include chamber, choral, symphonic, instrumental and solo piano works.
