Richard Goode is known for music-making of tremendous emotional power, depth, and expressiveness, and he is acknowledged worldwide as one of today’s leading interpreters of classical and romantic music. “Goode has so thoroughly entered into the spirit of the compositions he performs that you’d swear the composer himself was a the keyboard” (Toronto Globe and Mail). Goode’s return to the Festival features Schubert’s last three sonatas, some of the most exalted music ever written.
A pre-concert talk by Wayne Petty, Associate Professor of Music Theory at the University of Michigan, will be held from 7 to 7:45 PM in the Chenery Auditorium Reception Room preceding the concert. Free to ticket holders.

Richard Goode has been hailed for music-making of tremendous emotional power, depth and expressiveness, and has been acknowledged worldwide as one of today’s leading interpreters of Classical and Romantic music. In regular performances with the major orchestras, recitals in the world’s music capitals, and through his extensive and acclaimed Nonesuch recordings, he has won a large and devoted following.
Gramophone magazine recently captured the essence of what makes Richard Goode such an original and compelling artist: ‘‘Every time we hear him, he impresses us as better than we remembered, surprising us, surpassing our expectations and communicating perceptions that stay in the mind.”
Richard Goode opens his 2015-2016 season as soloist with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and Jeffrey Kahane, followed by appearances with the Orchestre de Paris and Hebert Blomstedt, the Cincinnati Symphony and David Zinman, and the Orchestre National de Lyon and Ton Koopman, among others. A compelling recitalist, Mr. Goode will be featured in the Great Performers Series at Lincoln Center in New York, at the Royal Festival Hall in London, in the Chicago Symphony series, and at major venues in the U.S. and Europe including those in Budapest, Cleveland, Denver, Dublin, Genova, Glasgow, Kansas City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Vancouver and Washington, DC. He will also return to both the Gilmore Festival and Krannert Center at the University of Illinois in addition to performing in a gala concert celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society.
