Stephen Hough – Bach and Schumann
This is the 5th week of Wigmore Hall’s free access to their archive and includes a number of special concerts. Here is one of them:
First, this was a significant concert in the history of Wigmore Hall. Sir Stephen Hough opened the special series of lockdown concerts in June 2020 with Busoni’s piano arrangement of Bach’s D minor Chaconne for violin, evoking Busoni’s own gala performance at the opening of the Wigmore Hall almost 119 years ago to the day.
Here too is Robert Schumann’s Fantasie in C Op.17.
