the first annual international stephen hough appreciation week: day 6!

to you and your kin, i bid a most blest day #6 of the first annual international stephen hough appreciation week.  we’re working overtime this weekend at the beaver home office, slipping on our “wwshd?” bracelets, flicking my bic (solemnly), and lighting the orange candle which honors the man as composer.  would you believe that mr. hough is not only pianist extraordinaire, he is also a prolific composer?  some highlights: his mass setting was performed at westminster abbey, he has transcribed numerous works for the piano (including rodgers & hammerstein!… oh-kay-el-ay-aitch-oh-em-ay!), and last year at the invitation of the national gallery in london, he composed music for the exhibition the sacred made real: spanish painting and sculpture [btw, a podcast of stephen’s music is on the lower right side of that linked page… so check it, word].  musician, blogger, macarthur fellow, poet, activist, composer… what else could stephen hough possibly be?
