Stephen Hough

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Stephen Hough writes, "Chopin is more like Solomon, reaching out for one of the Queen of Sheba's more exotic perfumes, nostrils quivering with the intoxicating, heady harmonies." That insight is evident in his playing, which the San Francisco Chronicle lauded for its utmost intimacy and lyricism. The program also includes works by Debussy.
