British pianist Stephen Hough tackles Grieg’s Lyric Pieces in his latest disc, and his performance of ‘Homeward’ is this week’s free download.

A collection of 66 short solo piano works, the Lyric Pieces were written between the years of 1867 and 1901, and divided into 10 volumes. ‘Homeward’ concludes the seventh volume, which was published in 1895 when the Norwegian composer was resting at Troldhaugen, his home in Bergen, recovering from a serious illness.

In the July 2015 issue of BBC Music Magazine, out next week, reviewer Michael Church praises Hough’s recording: ‘his playing of the Lyric Pieces has an aristocratic refinement, with his control of the minute ebb-and-flow of his sound being a pleasure in itself… Artistry of this order more than compensates for the limited emotional range of these unassuming little works.’
