Stephen Hough Plays Dvorak

Stephen Hough Plays Dvorak
Piano -Stephen Hough

Conductor -Tom Gauterin

Beethoven -King Stephen Overture

Dvořák -Piano Concerto

Tchaikovsky -Symphony No. 5

Stephen Hough, one of the world’s greatest pianists, joins the Bristol Classical Players (on their Cheltenham debut) for a rare performance of Dvořák’s beautiful Piano Concerto. This charming masterpiece, inspired by the woods and wildlife of his native Bohemia, has a famously difficult piano part that led to its neglect for many years – but tonight’s performance will show how, in sympathetic hands, Dvořák’s fragile music can shine. This is followed by Tchaikovsky’s passionate 5th Symphony, one of the best-loved of all Romantic symphonies. In this towering work, Tchaikovsky starts with doubt and wrestles with Fate itself – before emerging triumphant.

The most perfect piano playing conceivable – The Guardian

A virtuoso who begins where others leave off – Washington Post
