Stephen Hough Partita

Chopin Scherzo No 2

I begin the recital with music by the English composer, Alan Rawsthorne. His Bagatelles, based on a small motivic nugget, were written in 1938 and were dedicated to my main piano teacher,
Gordon Green. Schumann’s Kreisleriana is one of his most characteristic works and reveals the composer’s inner world to the listener with disarming candour. It was dedicated to Chopin. My Partita was commissioned by the Naumburg Foundation for Albert Cano Smit. Having written four sonatas for piano of a serious, intense character I wanted to write something different – something brighter, more celebratory, more nostalgic. Written in 2019 it is in five movements. And finally Chopin… who needs no introduction! – Stephen Hough
