Stephen Hough performs Rachmaninoff (in Ogden)
Most pianists regard and even fear Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 as the most difficult in the repertoire, but Stephen Hough—who Music Director Thierry Fischer praises as “the perfect soloist”—is sure to take on the challenge with grace. Familiar music from Wagner’s Ring cycle is full of stirring, operatic drama and Unsuk Chin’s Chóros Chordón is a magical work evoking the cosmos.
