Richard Goode, piano

"Richard Goode is one of the finest pianists in the world." —The Washington Post

A magisterial presence at the keyboard, 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. Goode remains "among the most persuasive Beethoven interpreters of our time" (San Francisco Chronicle), known for performances of towering intellect, refinement, and insight.

In regular performances with major orchestras, recitals in the world’s music capitals, and acclaimed recordings, he has garnered a large and devoted following. Gramophone magazine recently captured the essence of what makes Richard Goode such an original and compelling artist: "Every time we hear him, he impresses us as better than we remembered, surprising us, surpassing our expectations and communicating perceptions that stay in the mind."

An exclusive Nonesuch recording artist, Goode has made more than two dozen recordings over the years, ranging from solo and chamber works to lieder and concertos. His 2009 recording of the five Beethoven concertos with the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Iván Fischer received exceptional critical acclaim, described as "a landmark recording" by the Financial Times and nominated for a Grammy Award.
