Classical Notes

In a huff: Stephen Hough

Posted at 8:42 PM on June 3, 2009 by John Birge

Opera Chic, the uber-popular classical music blog based in Italy, has been reading Classical Minnesota Public Radio's website.

She links to our interview with pianist Stephen Hough and the role that faith and prayer plays in his musical life.

She also links to a blog post that Stephen Hough wrote for the London Telegraph. Hough talks about his current visit to Minnesota, with a mini-screed about cellphones in the concert hall.

Be careful out there!
