Richard Goode is one of the world’s preeminent musicians. A native of the East Bronx, he studied with Elvira Szigeti and Claude Frank, with Nadia Reisenberg at the Mannes College of Music and with Rudolf Serkin and Mieczyslaw Horszowski at the Curtis Institute. Among his numerous prizes are the Young Concert Artists Award, First Prize in the Clara Haskil Competition (1973), and the Avery Fisher Prize. His distinguished career, which in the early days was directed towards chamber and collaborative performances with artists such as Dawn Upshaw, Richard Stoltzman and Alexander Schneider, now spans over five decades. Goode has played in virtually all the world’s major music halls and with its most prominent orchestras and conductors. His extensive discography on the Nonesuch label includes all the Beethoven Piano Sonatas, the complete Partitas by J.S. Bach, and solo and chamber works of Brahms, Schubert, Schumann, Chopin, Busoni, and George Perle. His Mozart Concerti recorded with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra received huge critical acclaim, including many ‘Best of the Year’ nominations and awards, and his CD of the Brahms sonatas with clarinetist Richard Stoltzman won a Grammy Award. Goode serves with Mitsuko Uchida as co-Artistic Director of the Marlboro Music School and Festival in Marlboro, VT. This will be his third solo recital for the Chopin Society.
