Richard Goode is regarded as one of the world’s leading classical and romantic pianists, known for his expressive and emotional depth in performance. But Goode is also well-known for his mentorship efforts – through master classes, panel appearances and other special projects.
The 2016 Gilmore Festival offers three opportunities to experience Goode’s piano expertise. He performs in a solo recital on May 11 at Chenery Auditorium with a program consisting of the exalted final three sonatas from Franz Schubert.
He performs again with soprano Sarah Shafer on May 12. Their collaboration began when Goode noticed Shafer’s talents at the Marlboro Festival. The New York Times called their program “polished yet essayistic and almost extemporaneous.”
Finally, Goode appears in our master class series on May 10. Here’s why he loves teaching Debussy’s Preludes in master classes:
You can see Lori Sims perform both Books of Debussy’s PrÃ©ludes on May 4 and May 6, as well as Jeremy Siskind and Andrew Rathbun’s jazz interpretations of the Books on May 5.
