Piano Recital by Richard Goode

Hailed for music-making of tremendous emotional power, depth and expressiveness, Richard Goode has been acknowledged worldwide as one of today’s leading interpreters of Classical and Romantic music. Last heard on this series in 2007, he makes a welcome return to perform a program of Bach.

“One of the greatest American pianists of this or any generation, Goode performs with deceptive ease; he plays with complete mastery of his instrument and the score, and without histrionics” — St. Louis Post
