The much-heralded English pianist Stephen Hough has been studying what makes a piece of music uniquely French. It's resulted in his latest collection: the <em>French Album</em>.<p>With works by Debussy, Faure, Poulenc and a number of lesser-known composers, Hough says he considers this new album "a sort of musical dessert trolley."<p>"There are some impressionist pieces, but it's a kind of romantic impressionism as well," Hough says.
