Stephen Hough: Foot Fetish?

You might wonder, after reading recent blog posts by this superb English pianist currently performing in Minneapolis.

Last week, he featured the fashion-forward feet of friend and former Juilliard colleague Bob Neu, now VP of the Minnesota Orchestra:

A few days later, Hough featured his own feet -- au naturel, this time -- at a local Nicollette Avenue pedicurist:

Be sure to tune in for Hough's live broadcast this Friday night at 8p on Classical MPR!
