Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

What: North­ern Cham­ber Orches­tra con­cert When: 7.30pm, Satur­day, March 7 Where: Her­itage Cen­tre, Roe Street, Macclesfield, SK11 6UT Cost: £13-£16, stu­dents £7, un­der-18s free CLAS­SI­CAL mu­sic en­thu­si­asts have the chance to hear glob­ally cel­e­brated pi­anist, Stephen Hough, who is widely re­garded as one of the great­est pi­ano play­ers of our times, when he per­forms with the North­ern Cham­ber Orches­tra in Macclesfield.

He will play Dvorák’s rhap­sodic pi­ano con­certo in G mi­nor at the Her­itage Cen­tre, Roe Street, on Satur­day, March 7, at 7.30pm, bring­ing solo pi­ano and orches­tra to­gether in sym­phonic style.

A true vir­tu­oso, Stephen Hough has been named by the Econ­o­mist as one of 20 living poly­maths – a per­son whose ex­per­tise spans a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of dif­fer­ent sub­ject ar­eas.

This is demon­strated by the fact that not only is he a vir­tu­oso pi­anist and an ac­com­plished writer and com­poser, he is also a re­spected the­olo­gian and vis­ual artist.

His mu­si­cal achieve­ments have re­sulted in many awards and ac­co­lades for his con­certs and record­ings and he has ap­peared with al­most all of the ma­jor Euro­pean and Amer­i­can orches­tras and reg­u­larly gives recitals around the world.

As the artist-in­res­i­dence with the BBC Sym­phony Orches­tra, he per­forms three con­cer­tos and a recital at the Bar­bican in Lon­don.

He holds sev­eral aca­demic po­si­tions, in­clud­ing in­ter­na­tional chair of pi­ano stud­ies at his alma mater, Manch­ester’s Royal North­ern Col­lege of Mu­sic, and was made a Com­man­der of the Or­der of the Bri­tish Em­pire (CBE) in 2014.
