Book Review: Rough Ideas

Jul 17, 2020

Stephen Hough is an award winning pianist, but is also considered a polymath. A polymath being 'a person of wide-ranging knowledge or learning.' Perhaps this is why his book Rough Ideas: Reflections on Music and More has such a broad and ambiguous title. Is Rough Ideas a rough read or is it clearer than the title suggests? West Lafayette Library Director Nick Schenkel has the review.
