Richard Goode, piano

Overview

Richard Goode has been hailed for music-making of tremendous emotional power, depth and expressiveness, and has been acknowledged worldwide as one of today’s leading interpreters of Classical and Romantic music. In regular performances with the major orchestras, recitals in the world’s music capitals, and through his extensive and acclaimed Nonesuch recordings, he has won a large and devoted following.

He recently performed with Louis Langrée and the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra in a program celebrating the 50th Anniversary of one of the country's most popular summer musical events. The American-born pianist has been featured in numerous European festivals including the prestigious Edinburgh Festival, in addition to appearances in London, Budapest, Madrid, Stockholm, Antwerp and Helsinki. He has also performed at Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln Center, with the Chicago Symphony, the University Musical Society in Ann Arbor and Celebrity Series of Boston. With recording partners Ivan Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra, his recordings of five Beethoven Piano Concertos have won worldwide acclaim. An exclusive Nonesuch recording artist, Goode has made more than two dozen recordings over the years, ranging from solo and chamber works to lieder and concertos.

A native of New York, Richard Goode studied with Elvira Szigeti and Claude Frank, with Nadia Reisenberg at the Mannes College of Music, and with Rudolf Serkin at the Curtis Institute. Mr. Goode served, together with Mitsuko Uchida, as co-Artistic Director of the Marlboro Music School and Festival in Marlboro, Vermont from 1999 through 2013. He is married to the violinist Marcia Weinfeld, and, when the Goodes are not on tour, they live with their collection of some 5,000 volumes in New York City.

"Richard Goode is a pianist's pianist, a keyboard artist of insight and refinement..."

Toronto Globe and Mail

“Goode has so thoroughly entered into the spirit of the compositions he performs that you'd swear the composer himself was at the keyboard.”

Chicago Classical Review

“Richard Goode is a pianist's pianist, a keyboard artist of insight and refinement...”

San Francisco Classical Voice

“...he seems utterly inside the music at hand, affording the listener an intimate, insightful glimpse into the composer's interior world of emotion and ideas.”
