Stephen Hough piano

In the writings of Paul Richter, Robert Schumann discovered a world of humanity turned inside out. Richter’s varying images of human nature inspired Schumann’s Carnaval, a series of kaleidoscopic pianistic portraits shaped by characters real, mythlogical and both. Stephen Hough negotiates their almost orchestral sonorities here alongside Brahms’s majestic Third Piano Sonata and two of Chopin’s most spellbinding Nocturnes. But the centerpiece is a sonata by Hough himself, who in composing mode ‘speaks with substance, fluent ease, confidence and communicative immediacy’ according to Gramophone magazine.
