Stephen Hough (born November 22, 1961) is a British-born classical pianist, composer and writer. He became an Australian citizen in 2005 and thus has dual nationality. Hough was born in Heswall (then in Cheshire) on the Wirral Peninsula, and grew up in Hoylake, where he began piano lessons at the age of five. In 1978, he was a finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition and won the piano section. In 1982, he won the Terence Judd Award in England.
