Notes & Reviews:

The music of Scriabin and Janacek, two contrasting and highly eccentric composers that are dear to Stephen Hough's heart, makes for a perfect recital. The sensual perfumes of the one intertwine with the disruptive obsessions of the other as Hough, ever the magician, casts his spell.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2015
In wave after wave of opulently ambivalent harmony, Hough brings orientation and direction without sacrificing sensuality or mystical aura. He accomplishes this through an almost uncanny variety of touch, tone production and judicious pedalling... Hough's contribution in this release could scarcely be more generous.
