One of today’s most thrilling and highly acclaimed artists, Richard Goode is universally hailed as a deeply insightful interpreter of the Viennese classics. His emotionally rich, far-ranging recital will feature two of Mozart’s most dramatic sonatas in alternation with a selection of Brahms’s beloved intermezzi, ballades, and romances.

“The best pianists are able to produce an alluring sound from any instrument. Richard Goode, during a magisterial performance of late Beethoven sonatas in May at Carnegie Hall, produced a glowing, warm sound that encompassed a wide dynamic spectrum from muted intimacy to full‐throttle power without ever sounding harsh.” – The New York Times
