British pianist Stephen Hough is one of the premier performers of his generation. He holds the remarkable distinction, the first classical performing artist ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, and in 2014 was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth. He has performed as a soloist with virtually every major orchestra, including engagements to perform the complete works of Tchaikovsky at both the BBC Proms and the Chicago Symphony, and a televised appearance with the Berlin Philharmonic under Simon Rattle. As a recording artist, his over 50 albums have garnered innumerable awards, including the Diapason d’Or, France’s most prestigious classical recording prize. He is a faculty member at both the Royal Academy of Music in London, and the Juilliard School in New York.
