Stephen Hough Wigmore Hall residency

In the first concert of his Wigmore Hall residency, pianist Stephen Hough is joined by Steven Isserlis to perform Dvorak, Suk, Brahms and his own cello sonata, 'Les adieux'.

In the first concert of his Wigmore Hall residency, pianist and composer Stephen Hough is joined by his long-term friend and collaborator, the cellist Steven Isserlis for a programme including music by Dvorak, Suk and both Brahms cello sonatas. Plus one of Stephen's own compositions which he describes as non-programmatic, but 'conjuring up ghosts of Beethoven and Dussek'.
