Dream Album

The acclaimed English-born pianist Stephen Hough has released two new CDs of solo-piano music in 2020. We've been able to add BOTH of these recordings to our 104.9 FM music library thanks to the support of our donors and members!

Hough's "Dream Album" combines encores, character pieces, etudes, lullabies and traditional melodies -- plus: a few of Hough's own original compositions and transcriptions.

Hough's new album of late Brahms pieces is titled 'The Final Piano Pieces". The sets of fantasias, intermezzos, and keyboard pieces, Op. 116-119 are all included.
