Mompou, Federico

Musica callada (28)


Stephen Hough (piano)


The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs awarded a rosette to Stephen Hough’s earlier Gramophone Award-winning Hyperion recording of Mompou, and this successor is equally fine. Música callada comprises twenty-eight exquisite miniatures, brief in duration yet rich in allusion: music which makes its mark with subtlety, understatement and a unique economy of means.


there is something just genuinely mesmerising about this noise Stephen Hough plays […]. The combination of objective skill, intellectual clarity, and colouration as well as his use of colours. […] It’s luminous the way he can make the piano sing and sparkle. This confidence to find the space between the notes is perfectly suited to these sketches.
Record Review (BBC Radio 3)
He brings focus and variety to each of these aural morsels, amply rewarding the concentration required on the part of the listener.
Gramophone March 2023
