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.
Richard Goode opened his 2017-2018 season at the Pablo Casals Museum in San Salvador, Spain and at the Verbier Festival in Switzerland. Among the orchestras with which he is appearing this season are the Cleveland Orchestra with Dohnanyi, the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Manze, the New York String Orchestra with Laredo at Carnegie Hall, and in Europe, with the London Philharmonic, Oslo Philharmonic, and BBC Philharmonic. One of today’s most revered recitalists, he will be heard in the Lincoln Center Great Performers Series, in Philadelphia, Berkeley, La Jolla, Madison, and in London and other European capitals.
Recently, Richard Goode appeared as soloist with Louis Langrée and the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra in a program filmed as part of a documentary celebrating the 50th Anniversary of one of the country’s most popular summer musical events. Another highlight of last season were concerts in Hungary and on tour in the U.S. with one of the world’s most admired orchestras and his recording partner, the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Ivan Fischer. Their recording of the five Beethoven Piano Concertos has won worldwide acclaim; Goode performed Concertos No. 2 and No. 4 on the tour, which included performances in February 2017 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Lincoln Center, and for the Chicago Symphony, the University Musical Society in Ann Arbor, and Celebrity Series of Boston.
