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.
