The brevity of our allocated time on earth is the subject of Stephen Hough’s Piano Sonata No. 4, Vida breve (Short Life), from which this album takes its name. Piano Sonatas by Chopin (No. 2) and Hough are the twin peaks of a typically stimulating recital which – as always from Stephen Hough – spans centuries and styles with assurance.
