Pianist Stephen Hough’s blog at Telegraph:

The Guardian said “The most perfect piano playing conceivable…” and The Washington Post “a virtuoso who begins where others leave off.”
English pianist Stephen Hough has enjoyed a phenomenal recording career with over forty recordings, many of which have won Gramophone and Diapason awards and Time Magazine’s Classical CD of the Year. He is a champion of forgotten masterpieces and newly commissioned works and is an avid writer, poet and composer.
In September 2008, Stephen Hough was awarded a Gold Disc for his Saint Saëns´s concerto set as the most popular classical recording of the past 30 years. Quite uniquely, Hough is open about weaknesses, about moments when he’s deeply questioned his career choice as a touring musician. Fighting his nerves and overcoming moments when he says he fails to reach his own high standards. The “writings” section of his website is highly recommendable.
