About This Performance
“It is hard to think of any other artist at once technically, temperamentally, and intellectually as suited to the challenges of Beethoven’s sonatas,” wrote a New York Times critic of Richard Goode. A rare combination of grandness and humility, boldness and insight, Goode is acclaimed for the tremendous emotional power, depth, and sensitivity of his playing.
