Hailed for music-making of tremendous emotional power, depth, and sensitivity, Richard Goode is acknowledged as one of today's master musicians and as one of the leading interpreters of Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart, and Schubert. Mr. Goode probes the inner reaches of works by any composer, infusing every measure with the utmost expressivity, making his musicianship an exciting combination of grandness and humility, boldness and depth -"the boldness of the mind, the depth of the heart." Mr. Goode's recitals regularly take him to the major centers of the USA, Europe and Japan, including New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Milan. One of the world's most admired artists, Richard Goode recently performed and curated a thirteen-event Perspectives project at Carnegie Hall and also had a similar residency at the Southbank Center in London. Performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic/Gustavo Dudamel, the Met Opera Orchestra/Fabio Luisi, the Boston Symphony on tour and a Carnegie Hall recital are all current season highlights.
