"Richard Goode is one of the finest pianists in the world."

The Washington Post

Richard Goode, piano

A magisterial presence at the keyboard, Richard Goode was the first American pianist to record the complete Beethoven sonatas. Decades later, he remains "among the most persuasive Beethoven interpreters of our time" (San Francisco Chronicle), known for performances of towering intellect, refinement, and insight. Here, he performs Beethoven's Sonata No. 28, one of his very favorite pieces and a work that marks the beginning of the composer's restless, searching late period. Goode's characteristically well-designed program also includes Renaissance-era works by William Byrd and Bach, as well as a selection of Debussy's timeless miniatures.
