'Stephen Hough's album takes wing in an atmosphere of tension and sombreness. Built around his own Second Piano Sonata, subtitled 'notturno luminoso', its programme extends on either side by Beethoven, Chopin and Schumann. In this world with its permutations of turbulence, hauntings, nightmare and a more sinister than usual masked ball, anything seems possible except tranquil sleep.' Jessica Duchen
