Beethoven: The Complete Piano Sonatas - Richard Goode (10 CDS)

$ 34.98 $ 39.98

Through regular performances with major orchestras, recitals in the world's music capitals, and acclaimed Nonesuch recordings, pianist Richard Goode has won a large and devoted following. The New Yorker has said, "What one remembers most from Goode's playing is not its beauty-exceptional as it is-but his way of coming to grips with the composer's central thought, so that a work tends to make sense beyond one's previous perception of it ... The spontaneous formulating process of the creator [becomes] tangible in the concert hall." And according to the New York Times, "It is virtually impossible to walk away from one of Mr. Goode's recitals without the sense of having gained some new insight, subtly or otherwise, into the works he played or about pianism itself."

In 2007-2008, Richard Goode has performed and curated a multi-event residency at the South Bank Centre in London as the year's Artist-in-Residence, and has performed recitals in such cities as Berlin, Paris, Milan, Toronto, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Berkeley. His orchestral appearances include the Boston Symphony Orchestra under the baton of James Levine at Tanglewood, the London Philharmonic with Kurt Masur, the Concertgebouw Orchestra with Ivan Fisher, the New York Philharmonic with Sir Colin Davis, the San Francisco Symphony with Alan Gilbert, and the Radio Philharmonique in Paris with Peter Oundjian.
In addition to his "engrossing" (New York Times) eight-event Carnegie Hall Perspectives in 2005-2006, Richard Goode was invited to hold master classes at the City's three leading conservatories-Juilliard, Manhattan, and Mannes-and to give two illustrated talks on his Perspectives repertoire at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In the 2006-2007 season, he was honored for his contributions to music with the first ever Jean Gimbel Lane Prize in Piano Performance, which culminated in a residency at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

During the 2006-2007 season, Richard Goode played recitals in the major music capitals in Europe and the United States, including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Edinburgh, New York, Washington DC, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. His orchestral appearances last season included the Budapest Festival Orchestra under the baton of Ivan Fisher and the DSO Berlin with Herbert Blomstedt.

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. He has won many prizes, including the Young Concert Artists Award, First Prize in the Clara Haskil Competition, the Avery Fisher Prize, and a Grammy Award. His remarkable interpretations of Beethoven came to national attention when he played all five concerti with the Baltimore Symphony under David Zinman, and when he performed the complete cycle of sonatas at New York's 92nd Street Y and Kansas City's Folly Theater.
