Hyperion 68176, 80:03, DDD [very generous offering time-wise!]

What a unique release! All transcriptions, many transcribed by Hough or composed by himself. One of the great pianists before the public today, this is a collector's "dream" CD as well. The booklet offers brief comments by Hough himself as to why he chose these particular pieces.

As always, Hyperion's sound is exquisite. This time, Hough uses a Yamaha CFX concert grand piano.

HIGHLY recommended.
