Painter Peter Doig and Pianist Stephen Hough Collaborate for One Evening
Monumental painting created by Peter Doig specifically for this singular event.

LONDON.- Painter Peter Doig and pianist Stephen Hough, two of the most important artists of their generation, collaborate for one evening to create a unique experience of art and music at London's Westminster Cathedral. Organized by the Friends of Westminster Cathedral in cooperation with Michael Werner Gallery, Stephen Hough performs selections by Bach, Franck and Chopin, beneath a monumental painting created by Peter Doig specifically for this singular event, taking place October 26.

Peter Doig is one of the most accomplished and inventive painters working today. Drawing from a wide range of popular and art historical sources, his works explore the evocative possibilities of paint and its capacity for depth and meaning. Peter Doig's paintings, by turns melancholic and hallucinatory, are quiet occasions for contemplation and looking that take us outside the realm of our normal daily experience. Peter Doig was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1994 and later served as a trustee of the Tate Gallery until 2000. He is a professor at the Düsseldorf Art Academy since 2005. In 2008 Tate Britain, in cooperation with Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris and Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, organized a major survey of the artist's work, bringing together important series of major paintings and related works on paper from the past 20 years. Works by the artist are to be found in many important public collections worldwide, including Tate, London; The British Museum, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Art Institute of Chicago; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and Dallas Museum of Art.

Stephen Hough is widely regarded as one of the most important and distinctive pianists of his generation. He has appeared with most of the major European and American orchestras. Stephen Hough's recordings have garnered international prizes including the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis, Diapason d'or, Monde de la musique, several Grammy nominations, and eight Gramophone Magazine Awards, including the Gramophone Gold Disc Award in 2008, which named his Saint-Saëns Piano Concertos as the best recording of the past 30 years. An avid writer and composer, he has written numerous scholarly CD liner notes and has contributed articles to The Guardian and The Times. Most recently he composed the string sextet, Requiem Aeternam: After Victoria, to coincide with the National Gallery's major exhibition, The Sacred Made Real: Spanish Painting and Sculpture 1600-1700. A resident of London, Stephen Hough is a visiting professor at the Royal Academy of Music in London and holds the International Chair of Piano Studies at his alma mater, the Royal Northern College in Manchester.
