The Times (London) calls Stephen Hough "the living advocate" of Mendelssohn’s First Piano Concerto, which was an immediate hit from its premiere in 1831. Thirty years prior, Beethoven’s Third Symphony had changed classical music forever by breaking the rules of form, length, and harmony. And the program begins with one of the most enduring musical portraits of Romeo and Juliet.

Stephen Hough, that titan of the keyboard, dispatched Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No 1 with such dazzling ease he hardly seemed to put a hair out of place. ”
