International Piano Series: Richard Goode
An evening of Schubert performed by the famed concert pianist
The distinguished American pianist Richard Goode has forged an exceptional worldwide reputation across the decades. Tonight he dedicates his programme to the last three piano sonatas by Schubert – all masterpieces written in quick succession during the last year of the composer’s short life. The C minor work explores stormy territory with compulsive power; the A major contrasts extremes of expansive beauty and anarchic terror; and finally the B flat Sonata is among Schubert’s best-loved late works, both radiant and heart-breaking. Franz Schubert: Sonata in C minor, D.958 Franz Schubert: Sonata in A, D.959 Interval Franz Schubert: Sonata in B flat, D.960 Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
"It is virtually impossible to walk away from one of Mr Goode’s recitals without the sense of having gained some new insight... into the works he played."
