Richard Goode, piano
2013 Spivey Memorial Concert
One of today’s greatest pianists and most searching musicians, Richard Goode "is the supreme master of musical rhetoric, a genius at distilling and expressing the absolute essence of the musical thought behind any composition" (The Globe and Mail, Toronto).
"There is no flamboyance or opulence about his playing, just a remarkable attention to detail, to the energy of every rhythm, the expressive potential of every texture and harmonic shirt, and above all to the way in which the music creates a unique world of sensibility" (The Arts Guardian, London).
