About This Performance

Note: This performance was originally scheduled for February 5.

Three seasons ago, Richard Goode brought to Philadelphia a recital anchored by Bach and Debussy, which had our audience leaping to a standing ovation at its conclusion. Returning for his 30th PCMS recital, Goode once again immerses himself in Debussy’s Préludes (this time the first book). Of that 2017 performance the Philadelphia Inquirer stated, “Pianists must create their own individual sound world with Debussy… though few do so with as much diligence and artistry as Goode.”

Bach: Partita in D Major, BWV 828
Beethoven: Sonata in A Major, Op 101
Debussy: Préludes, Book I and II [Sel.]
