Sunday 25 September 2022, 3.00pm


Named by The Economist as one of Twenty Living Polymaths, Sir Stephen Hough combines a distinguished career as a pianist with those of composer and writer. He was the first classical performer to be awarded a MacArthur Fellowship, was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the New Year Honours 2014, and was awarded a Knighthood for Services to Music in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2022.

Sir Stephen is a regular guest at festivals such as Salzburg, Mostly Mozart, Edinburgh, La Roque-d'Anthéron, Aldeburgh, and the BBC Proms, where he made his 29th appearance in 2020 with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. In June 2020 he returned to Wigmore Hall to give the UK’s first live classical music concert in a major venue since the nationwide lockdown earlier that year. Recital highlights in 2021/22 include a return to London’s Royal Festival Hall as well as Caramoor, Toronto, Tallinn, Gstaad and Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall.
