Sir Stephen Hough brings his trademark eloquence and precision to a recital filled with music by composers close to his heart. From the mysterious and mystical realms of Mompou and Scriabin to the evocative imagery of Debussy and Hough's own Partita, Hough leaves a stamp on all of this repertoire. His recital closes with a suite of pieces selected from the second volume of Liszt's Années de pèlerinage—the famous Petrarch sonnets as well as the astounding "Dante Sonata." The Library has several works by Mompou in its collections, and an original song manuscript that is a darker revision of one of Liszt's most beloved songs and piano transcriptions, the "Sonetto 104 del Petrarca."

Prior to the recital, David Plylar of the Library's Music Division offers a lecture on Dante and other signs of the times, 6:30pm at the Thomas Jefferson Building Whittall Pavillion. More information: https://www.loc.gov/item/event-407918/on-dante-and-other-signs-of-the-times/2023-03-21/
