Stephen Hough and Castalian String Quartet
This event was streamed live from Wigmore Hall on Tuesday 7 January 2020
This concert was part of the ongoing Stephen Hough Residency at Wigmore Hall which features Brahms - in some instances arranged by Hough himself - as a staple. Few musicians possess Hough’s diverse creativity and intellectual curiosity, his 2001 award of a MacArthur Fellowship demonstrating the international reputation he has continued to enjoy, and which has expanded further through his compositions and burgeoning literary career.
Following its successful Wigmore debut in 2017, the Castalian String Quartet went on to receive the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award and the Merito String Quartet Award/Valentin Erben Prize; this programme includes a recently rediscovered work.
