5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime
Having been privileged enough to hear Mr Hough play this in a small intimate venue where his sheer brilliance had the room mesmerised, we purchased it. We love his composition, the man is more than a genius.

2.0 out of 5 stars TOO HECTIC
Disappointing... some of the music was to loud and too fast, the Title ....IN THE NIGHT..... suggested it would be a nice quiet cd to listen to in the night! But it is too hectic. I wish there was some of way of listening to the cds before I buy them. I probably wont order this way again. I wanted a nice peaceful music and this CD was not it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Moonlight, 3 July 2014

This review is from: Stephen Hough: In The Night [Stephen Hough ] [Hyperion: CDA67996] (Audio CD)
Stephen Hough has always been one of my favourite pianists. I saw him playing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata (which is included on this disc) and the Liszt B minor (which isn't) a couple of years ago. They were spellbinding performances and he's managed to work the same magic here.

The theme of 'In the Night' is an interesting one and lets him explore all things nocturnal. The Moonlight Sonata is at the centre of the recital and Hough plays it brilliantly, as he does the Schumann and Chopin pieces. The real discovery, though, is Stephen Hough's own composition, the 'Notturno Luminoso'. A Moonlight Sonata for our time and not to be missed.

Just brilliant playing all through - the Schumann especially a revelation. And SH's own 'notturno luminoso' magnificent. SH always makes you hear the pieces you know (like the Moonlight) again for the first time - always good plus something special.
