Hough Like the pianist can do a lot bad, like this far as I am concerned. This thoughtful selection and diverse tip his skills of amazing keyboard were the brilliant advantage: included a slighter pieces (and has a lot such) is managed with such consummate delicacy that shine like this brightly like this of the most ambitious compositions.
4 / 5
This disk contains some very attractive pieces and some which am perhaps too subtiles partorisca me - I does not find that they resist an attention like such, but one touching is lovely and a selection the good introduction to some composers to that I a lot otherwise give shelf-spatial

Stephen Hough the French album is the collection adds that it follows a mix-and-model of party of the number of the earliest emissions, like a Spanish Album. We take the mix of some familiar and a unfamiliar - of Debussy Claro of Lune and Ravel Dawn of the Ape the Faure, Poulenc, Alkan, Hough own transcriptions of pieces for Delibes and Massenet, Cortot transcriptions, the Liszt acts paraphrase and external abundance delectable pieces. Hough Is touching is impressive, as we are to come to expect, any less in an amazing sense of light and the shadow finds in Ravel Dawn of the Ape. A Faure the pieces are the model of expression and restriction, and a Massenet/Hough looks some of a plus fantastically the delicate piano that the touch never is probably to find. Hough Is the true master by heart, and his fantastically shaded and graded the dynamic is to die stops.

A main draw of an album is a brilliant programming - the person is better that Hough in bringing together several pieces around the @@subject and moulding his to the cogent album ossia the delight of an extreme to the another. Compared to a Spanish Album sooner, this collection there is arguably the pocola less variety - in spite of an occasional brilliant showpiece, is dominated a lot for the nocturnal way, but in Hough the hands done to add listening any time. Another success for one of one the majority of interesting pianists of our time.

Stephen Hough the French album is anything but the national stereotype. There are welcome clues of long evenings, glasses of wine and leave to do, but Hough regularly gives the dose of acid and a glimmer of steel. Of a swaggering but muscular Bach arrangements for Alfred Cortot to Liszt Reminiscences of the Jewish, ossia the dazzling shop window of pianism, without flanges.

Cortot Was Swiss, Liszt was the Hungarian, an image of the coverage in a CD is an English product of the Saxon retreat and Hough is British born. Still in spite of a geographic plurality of this album 'French', a whole thing is joined for the notably Gallic felt of class and swagger. Hough Bach There is breathless the lines and one attacks fresh of improvisation. More amazing is a fluent transition to the common of works for Fauré. Sensual, warm, Hough has programmed the good-looking sequence of the tones that heads to never more capricious harmonic terrain. Ravel Aube Of the finally run ape by means of, that adds the pinch of juice of lemon.

After such flashy precision, Hough gives the touch partorisca concern the miniatures for Massenet, Chabrier and Poulenc. That plants water of droplet of notes of basses, a erotic flowers in a line of melody and seamless cantabile touching mark partorisca the potent heart to a disk. Alkan The song of the crowd to the bordos of the sea then undercuts his heat with a eerie frisson.

Hough Fixed typical of a 'Pizzicati' of Delibes' Sylvia resupplies the deft balance of a racy and a refined, first of Liszt muscular 'brilliant Fantasies' apresamiento on. Hough Describes a disk as 'a class of musical dessert trolley'. There is quite sugar to sate a sweeter tooth, but the plot more besides.
5 / 5
Has found this the bit to disappoint. It likes Stephen Hough to apply his obvious talent to something the little more serious. Also a title was misleading. An action was a lot. Election to do less so much.

Stephen Hough shows of Albums of New Piano, once again, an utmost versatilty of this pianist.
A way he teases out of some nuances of some of some pieces is like this refreshing, how is his humour with some of his own creations like a 'Waltz of Carousel'
A hyperion the register is, as we are partorisca come to expect,a lot well with the navigation of realistic piano.
An annoyance owe state is a 'Dumka' piece for Tchaikovsky. Reason Hough has decided to ignore a final three agreements of this wonderful piece is the mystery. To my alcohol destroys it entirely. Another slightly will disagree.
In spite of, highly recommended.

I have bought this partorisca concerts of piano 1,3 and 5, of then are already the lover of numbers 2 and 4, which already has in another register.

This in spite of, has been surprised by an extra level of expression in 2 & 4 compared with an a lot of other versions have listened, although appearances at all less than an unquestionable character of a Hough.

Are in no way an expert, but are the enormous defender of Saint-Saens, and these registers underline especially another has listened.

Wonderful touching for Stephen Hough which is both powerful and dazzlingly attentive stylishly impulses this together with a firmament, really done . Some concerts does not progress any one a lot in fashion of number 1 (apparently, a first concert of the piano written for the French) partorisca number 5 but some pieces are not simply rehashes of the each one another. A Fourth Concert is undoubtedly one the majority of intimate and thoughtful and is recognised usually like such, with his novel structure (two movements each breaking for the half) and a Fifth is really one the majority of thrilling and amazing, taking down a Nile likes , in of a vacacional exotic of a composer ( is an enthusiastic traveller - in fact holidays of data).

When you Buy a together, has each reason partorisca listen to some pieces in order, partorisca Santo-Saens has had the true swipe with an end of a first Concert, which there will be you unable to dry a smile of your face. A Second popular Concert and a correspondingly Third neglected, with his bawdy, romping to the final is both wonderfully touched and has sustained also.

I pieces more the scarce in some neighbours are comprised felizmente partorisca do a complete studio ('Africa'..'Twisted of pair'..)

Has each reason partorisca recommend this emission and a mine of looks of the sound any partorisca suffer a character closeness like another reviewer there is remarked, but can be my crew that is assisting.

Like a lot of lovers of a romantic French repertoire, has been with is mad about that it anticipates this emission partorisca some time. Hough Surprised still again with his effervescent touch and virtuosidad dazzling - in fact, looks the toss of these gems of a repertoire jointly with such nonchalant ease. That his interpretations compare with some other leaders in a field, specifically Roars, Collard and Biret? Consider all other versions well and for real trounced. Oramo And his merry band resupplies sterling support with the perfect feel for this music and the wonderful balance, thank closing again to a Hyperion crew. Wholeheartedly, ossia the register adds for one of a More adds them pianists around. An attended accolades galore in of the days partorisca come - to take note, Gramophone!
5 / 5
Is hard to imagine the sympathetic plus, neither in fact big spirited, homage to Saint-Saens that this wonderful register. All five of some concerts of piano have something partorisca recommend them and am happy that finally is appreciated when being in his own earths. Long neglected, Concerts 1, 3, 4 and 5 east of the wonderful pieces, full of fun, elegance and poise. A register is in the real class of the his own, and ossia the very worthy ister' of Hough' recent register of Rachmaninoff concerts.

Also presents here is some smaller pieces, the little likes the rondos of movement of Mozart. Here, as in some Concerts, the presence of Mozart can be felt. This in spite of is a synthesis of the light orchestration of Mozart and masterful musical development with Stravinsky lunar-classical tendancies (without a edgy harmonies), mixed with one or two surprised like the heart of gamelans, this does this FULL CD of just roughly all concealed well while having in music.

Highly recommended!

Had not listened this first music to buy, but taste explore less known music. Ossia The bravura action for Stephen Hough; a music is very defiant partorisca an interpreter, but very easy to appreciate. Saint material Saens has been influenced for Chopin, as it likes Chopin of concerts, these pieces will be ideal. A register is brilliant & modern and recommend it to any the one who is in of the big alcohols; it enhances the good way!
5 / 5
A Saint-Saens Concerts of the piano consistently is involving pieces that deserves partorisca be listened more often. Full of talent, surprised, and no without doing neither. His utmost elements like this partorisca concerts and in CDs. This register, in spite of all a praise, is the bit partorisca disappoint. Hough Is consistently fast and thrilling, but lack of a @@@sparkle, talent and wants to ossia essential for this music. An end of No. 5, For example, is pounded was quite insensitively compared to a swagger of Jean-Philippe Collard or Roars of Pascal. These two rests some upper elections for these pieces. They touch with more than memory, @@@sparkle and imagination that Hough, and is much more economic also. On that, Oramo orchestral accompaniment for Hough next doors the Previn (for Collard) and Dutoit (for Roar).

This register is in no way bad, but really can not see any reason for the buy of then one on the alternative is both better and more economic.

Was this neighbour has won multiple prizes and received a lot of descriptions favorecedoras, and perhaps my expectations have been dipped too big like the result, but I hate to say that it was sorely disappointed with this together of a Saint brilliant Saens concerts.
Are the admirer adds of Hough, and his Rachmaninov and Hummel the registers remain among one much more, but this so only no for me. His no that there is a lot of injustice with Hough he, but a quite four square touching of an orchestra, and poor closeup touch it enough spoils things for me.
Thinks a description of BBC QUOTED on sums he on enough well. A register is described like trangely intimate'. All a lot well for Mozart, but no thus big splashy and showy works.
Sakari Oramo Is directing is any party for any Previn or Dutoit in a main competition to this together, and a Collard/Previn in excellent EMI his digital, and Roars/Dutoit in absolutely of first tax Decca the equivalent attacks some something of this endeavour in the each way.
Any of this alternative is available for the in inner poverty of Amazon a moment, as not to cost you a lot a lot of to give them the try first to spend the full prize is. You will be happy has done.

Ossia Simply one of some the majority of thrilling exposures of virtuosidad of piano that has not listened never, and a society among soloist and the orchestra is perfect. I have not been familiarised with the majority of some works in a 2conjoint CD but is everything extremely enjoyable, and some so only stunning. Listening unfailingly relieve some alcohols.

There is enjoyed his Rachmaninov dipped you certainly will enjoy this. It is Stephen Hough in his brilliant more, and is the delight to start with to finalise. Hopefully Helps to rehabilitate these delicious but has neglected concerts.

A lot thanks to Stephen Hough partorisca this sake that record how was keenly anticipated - a lot of value a wait. It can not be better. One Schumann, the lifelong the preferred of mine is terrific also.

A Dvorak Concert of the piano there has been the mixed history in both concert and of the registers, and is adds that it looks here unapologetically beside a Schumann: two Of the-Concerts of cast in of the glorious actions for Stephen Hough. It is clear that it is the work particularly close the Hough heart - has any 'write think need any excuses but he need apologists fervently committed partorisca spend the life this neglected but gloriously lyrical music.'

My benchmark register, likes partorisca a lot of another, has been long Sviatoslav the classical account of Richter with a BRSO and Carlos Kleiber - the unanimously rented register for critics but one that Richter felt has not taken neither he or Kleiber in his respective bests. Richter has achieved results more spontaneous in of the alive register with Smetacek and Svetlanov, but both orchestras and the sound have registered is worse that a Kleiber version. It likes him Richter, Hough uses an original version of a bookmark (A Vilem Kurz the edition has used partorisca be more popular and Firkusny touched it sometimes, with his that means well but, according to Hough, unsuccessful adjustments), and has produced that record that hopefully inspire the new generation of pianists partorisca the take up. An inaugural is measured more than Richter is. During an orchestral exposure asked was too slow partorisca a 'churned' marking, but Hough quickly dipped any doubts partorisca rest with his inspired touching: rhythmically pointed and polyphonically conscious, is the so much full action of life and with the rigorous attention partorisca detail.

An Andante sustained is touched here in the reasonably flowing time, and work perfectly - Hough is touching is almost old-pupil in his imaginative use by heart, and a movement sings easily. Utmost dialogues among piano and woodwind - a credit has to that go the Nelsons and a CBSO also. In this evidence, is hard to see reason this piece is not more populate. An end, like a first movement, does not break any record of speed - instead, takes extraordinary clarity together with bouncing and joy to live of Hough and a CBSO. In general, it is the action where an emotion of surface matches a depth and subtlety, and have any saying of question is my favourite register of a piece.

One Schumann Marchi is also well, this in spite of perhaps a lot quite like this exceptional. Of course, there is significant competition here, but Hough and a CBSO more than resisting his own. It was initially sceptical, of then see Hough like this mainly the 'quota' pianist, but an inaugural has all a requisite laws and pressed in the no-interpretation of atrocity. Perhaps Hough a lot quite take to to the flight likes him Martha Argerich stops of example, but then again that , Ossia The action that gathers force and moment in the aim, and a cadence and closing the moments of a first movement are electrifying. A slow movement, as his Dvorak counterpart, is a lot of sensitively has touched. An end is slower that usual but he no bog down - the rhythms are tight and has quite a lot of interesting details for the maintain thrilling. There is arguably the little mannerisms here and there (opening he of an end is an obvious example), but his no detract of a fact that is in general the action that directs fresh without an impression that some musicians are looking for to be different for a sake of him. He no quite move my preferred (Argerich of Lugano, Lupu/LSO/Previn and Kovacevich/BBCSO/Davis), but is a lot very in fact.

But a main appeal here is Hough glorious interpretation of a Dvorak Concert - does not lose it !
