Product description

Product Description

Exquis! Stephen Hough presents an enchanting programme of French music, played with the filigree perfection and total command of the music's expressive world that make him one of the most admired pianists of today. In typical Houghian style this recital is full of surprises and lesser-known gems from the repertoire, as well as works by the masters Faure, Ravel, Debussy and Poulenc. A particular delight is Hough's own arrangement of the Massenet song Crepuscule, a ravishing exercise in creative yet faithful transcription. This release is both a tribute to the lyric genius which flowered in nineteenth- and twentieth-century France, and a glimpse into the musical mind of a great pianist.

Review

"A superlative performance." Performance *** Recording ****

----BBC Music Magazine, Oct'12



"Even by Hough standards the whole enterprise is a tour de force and easily the most satisfying disc of piano music I ve encountered so far this year." IRR OUTSTANDING

--IRR, Sept'12

Stephen Hough describes this album as a sort of musical dessert trolley . Come, come. Too modest. There may be generous helpings of bonbons and souffles but it all amounts to a great substantial gourmet feast of masterly pianism. GRAMOPHONE CHOICE --Gramophone Awards issue '12
