Guest pianist Stephen Hough joins Dausgaard and the orchestra onstage to perform Liszt: Piano Concerto No. 1. Hough, a past winner of a Mac-Arthur Fellowship and currently Artist-in-Residence with the BBC Symphony in London, is a bit of a renaissance man. In addition to being a world-class pianist, Hough is a much-in-demand composer, writing commissions for Le Musée du Louvre and the Berlin Philharmonic. A prolific author, Hough has frequently written about theology and often writes for several London newspapers, including The Times, The Guardian and the Daily Telegraph, where he pens an extremely popular cultural blog. On a different tack, he recently had an exhibit of his paintings in a London gallery.
