ArtistsStephen Hough (piano)
This attractively priced double set is one of Stephen Hough’s most important recordings. ‘Britain’s greatest living pianist’ (The Mail on Sunday) is joined by Mozarteumorchester Salzburg and international conductor Mark Wigglesworth in their Hyperion debut for Brahms’ Piano Concertos.
These works are among the greatest in the genre, and shore up Brahms’ reputation as both a symphonist and a piano composer. Separated by twenty-two years and widely differing in their reception (the first was scorned and the second a huge success), they are monumental in scale, impassioned and truly romantic, forward-looking in form and requiring both great virtuosity and intimacy from the pianist. Stephen Hough has performed them in concert for many years to ecstatic acclaim: this new recording is surely one of his most desirable offerings.
