“[Hough] is known as a rare kind of visionary virtuoso [and] what I cherish in Hough’s playing is the sense that he is making up the music as he goes, even as he realizes the written score with uncommon precision.” - The New Yorker

Over the course of his impressive career, Stephen Hough has distinguished himself as a true polymath, not only securing a reputation as a uniquely insightful concert pianist, but also as a writer and composer. Join Hough, MacArthur “Genius,” and the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet for this very special evening of Mozart, Barber and more - including an original work by Hough.
