‘The most perfect piano playing conceivable’ - The Guardian

Described as ‘A virtuoso who begins where others leave off’ (Washington Post), internationally acclaimed pianist Stephen Hough needs little by way of introduction. He has produced some 50 plus recordings and given numerous performances at the BBC Proms and at every major international festival. Recipient of the Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist ward in 2010, Stephen has performed concerti with many of the world’s finest orchestras and through his work as a composer and writer his output is both prolific and highly regarded. Stephen was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2014 New Year's Honours List and performs for the second time in the Barber Evening Concert series.

Tickets: £15, £12 concessions, £10 Barber Friends, £5 students, available from the Barber Institute reception (0121 414 7333)
