Stephen Hough at Hollywood Bowl 8/15/10

August 16, 2010

I went to hear one of my favorite pianists at Hollywood Bowl, Stephen Hough with Brahms #1 concerto. I like his collections of pieces (like Spanish one and English one) on CDs, and I learned some of charming pieces out of his CDs. Actually I am bringing Granados/valses poeticos on my Central America Tour in September!  I am a big fun of Granados, but I did not know this very chamrming piece until I heard his CD.

Anyway I was very excited to hear him again. His performance was very refined, thoughtful, energetic and elegant—. His technique (on a Big screen we saw his hands pretty well!!) seems refined as his music is. And he has huge hands so those fingering on his hands won’t work for me. It was enjoyable evening with my cello friend. I had my sake with me during the concert, and it is perfect to enjoy drink at Hollywood Bowl. Tovey, the conductor, is a great charm for summer venue! Hough gives me a new idea each timeI hear him. I look forward for the future concert by Hough!
