Notes & Reviews:

Since the dawn of the gramophone era, Grieg's Lyric Pieces have attracted the greatest pianists to the microphone. Their individual brevity played a part in this, of course, but rather more so did their intellectual transparency. For this new recording Stephen Hough has chosen twenty-seven (of the sixty-six) - a generous selection encompassing every nuance of emotion, every tone of pianistic mastery.

The Guardian, 28th April 2015
His performances are wonderfully direct, without a trace of indulgence...With Hough, the music always comes first.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2015
Hough is up there with the best; may we never take his excellence for granted. ..Hough's detachment - it's a small thing - is also telling in its way, the detail and overview consistently in balance. His virtuosity, polish, control of nuance and a huge range of dynamics are lovely to have.

Sunday Times, 24th May 2015
With his virtuoso technique - which makes flashier pieces sound easy - he makes light work of Grieg's marching trolls (Op 54/3), initially comical, later more menacing...His poetic eloquence and cantabile playing evoke magic...The entire programme shows Hough in his element: our foremost Romantic pianist.
