Stephen Hough,piano

Stephen Hough is a performer of astonishing technical brilliance with the power to find profundity in even the splashiest piano showpiece. Tonight he traces the darkness-to-light journey of three great pianist-composers - and premieres his own Third Sonata. To celebrate the 175th anniversary of The Tablet, Hough has devised a programme by composers - Schubert, Liszt and Franck - whose spiritual preoccupations match his own.
