Stephen Hough returns to Sydney for final concert of tour

Stephen Hough is back in Sydney and having a well earned rest day, having not only performed but spoken about the links between music and perfume at last night’s Sydney Gala event. We’ve heard a rumour Stephen might head to the opera tonight to witness Richard Mills’ The Love of the Nightingale. Stephen’s final concert during this current Australian tour is tomorrow at City Recital Hall Angel Place at 2pm.

Stephen has wowed audiences all around the country on this tour. Queensland Musica Viva committee member (and Stephen’s friend through his blog and Twitter) John O’Leary commented “[Stephen’s performance] was overwhelming. By the time Stephen finished the Liszt sonata, I felt as though my guts had been ripped out, but in a good way. And I couldn’t believe that he did the Debussy L’Isle Joyeuse as one of his encores. I’ll take a week to settle down again.”

We’re looking forward to a stunning end to Stephen’s tour!
