Stephen Hough's French Album

Stephen Hough's take on colourful French piano classics with a few eccentric surprises along the way.

Stephen Hough's French Album

Pianist Stephen Hough describes his latest offering as a 'musical dessert trolley', and it's easy to see why. Sweet French classics like Debussy's Clair de Lune and Fauré's Nocturnes and Impromptus are interspersed with Hough's own arrangements of the delicate Pizzicati by Delibes, and Massenet's flowing Crépuscule.

The French-inspired music shows off the musical fruits of 19th and 20th Century France, given a modern twist by one of Britain's best-loved and most in-demand pianists. A real treat!

Listen to a track from Stephen Hough's French Album every weekday at 10.15, with John Suchet.
