Named by The Economist as one of 20 Living Polymaths, British pianist Stephen Hough is a true renaissance man - a leading concert pianist, writer, composer and painter. He has won global acclaim for his outstanding interpretations of the piano repertoire.
Hough uncovered a mistake in Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1, 138 years after the work was finished. After looking at the manuscript online in the Berlin Staatsbibliothek, Hough noticed a 'wrong note' F had been changed to a B flat in blue pencil. Before seeing the manuscript, he had cited a number of reasons for wanting to change the note in the score.
