Stephen Hough Plays Mendelssohn

Although he composed his First Symphony during a cold Leipzig winter, Robert Schumann later claimed, “I wrote the symphony in that rush of spring which carries a man away even in his old age, and comes over him anew every year.” Pianist Stephen Hough performs Mendelssohn’s glittering Piano Concerto, a hidden gem full of fire and drama.
