The Best of the Best
Stephen Hough’s 50+ CD recordings, several Grammy nominations, and MacArthur Genius Grant have earned him reputation as “the undisputed top dog among British concert pianists.” (According to The Economist)
A New American Sound
Although Dvořák was Czech, he is credited by many for being the first to solidify a truly American symphonic sound when he moved to the States in 1892. He accomplished this by studying Native American and African American folk tunes of the day, influences that are heard in his "New World" Symphony and "American" String Quartet.
