Richard Goode Piano Masterclass

| New England Conservatory: Williams Hall

Renowned pianist Richard Goode works with NEC piano students in the second of two masterclasses.

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 opened his 2017-2018 season at the Pablo Casals Museum in San Salvador, Spain and at the Verbier Festival in Switzerland. Among the orchestras with which he is appearing this season are the Cleveland Orchestra with Dohnanyi, the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Manze, the New York String Orchestra with Laredo at Carnegie Hall, and in Europe, with the London Philharmonic, Oslo Philharmonic, and BBC Philharmonic. One of today's most revered recitalists, he will be heard in the Lincoln Center Great Performers Series, in Philadelphia, Berkeley, La Jolla, Madison, and in London and other European capitals.
