Stephen Hough on Beethoven's 'Moonlight' Sonata

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

British Pianist Stephen Hough, last heard in New York at Avery Fisher Hall in this past summer’s Mostly Mozart Festival, is back in town for a recital tonight at Carnegie Hall.

He told Jeff Spurgeon what unites his program of Beethoven, Liszt, Scriabin and Janacek, and why opening with Beethoven’s “Moonlight” Sonata recalls a very, very old recital tradition.
