Stephen Hough's Dream Album
Studio Master: CDA68176  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘This is a marvellously varied collection of flights of fancy, transformations and transmutations which takes us through Hough’s personal dreamworld, the pieces often having special meaning for him … above all, it is Hough’s ability to draw the listener into the music through playing of enormous colour and expressive range that makes this enchanting disc so successful. The performer’s own epigrammatic thoughts on each piece, fuller programme notes from Grant Hiroshima, and a well-focused recording from the Wyastone Estate Concert Hall all add to this album’s plentiful delights’ (The Europadisc Review)» More

‘Power’s mellow tone makes for a poetic reading as the Byronic brooder, his echo of the opening theme as delicate as gossamer … Hyperion doesn’t place the viola too far into the spotlight. Berlioz would have approved’ (Gramophone)

English Motets
Studio Master: CDA68256  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘It’s all exquisitely done, collegiate smoothness and blend to the fore. And what blend! The harmonic voicing is immaculate yet always sensitive to the imperatives of the polyphonic flow—witness the plight of Jerusalem, conveyed with such honeyed heart-breaking simplicity, in Byrd’s Ne irascaris, Domine. Haunting too is the hushed restraint of Robert White’s Compline hymn. Weavers of rich and plangent tapestries, The Gesualdo Six meld style and substance with beguiling sure-footedness. An auspicious debut’ (BBC Music Magazine)
