Classical pianist Richard Goode will showcase his virtuoso keyboard skills in a 3 p.m. performance April 2, 2017, at the Lied Center for Performing Arts. He will perform pieces by Bach, Beethoven and Chopin.
Goode is recognized worldwide as one of the foremost interpreters of Classical and Romantic music. He regularly performs with major orchestras and gives recitals across the globe in the world’s music capitals. His recordings on the Nonesuch label have won him a large and loyal following as well as a GRAMMY® Award and several GRAMMY® nominations.
The Washington Post describes Goode as “one of the finest pianists in the world. Few can match his unfailingly beautiful tone, effortless technical command, interpretive insight and total emotional commitment to the music he plays.”
Last season, Goode performed as a soloist with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestre de Paris, the Cincinnati Symphony and the Orchestre National de Lyon, among others. He was featured in the Great Performers Series at New York’s Lincoln Center, at the Royal Festival Hall in London, in the Chicago Symphony series and at major venues in Europe and the U.S. In the 2015-2016 season, Goode opened Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival and was featured in five appearances at Carnegie Hall.
