“Richard Goode is one of the finest pianists in the world. Few can match his unfailingly beautiful tone, effortless technical command, interpretive insight and total emotional commitment to the music he plays.”
— The Washington Post

Grammy Award winner Richard Goode has been acknowledged worldwide as one of today’s leading interpreters of Classical and Romantic music. His numerous prizes over the years include the Young Concert Artists Award, First Prize in the Clara Haskil Competition, and the Avery Fisher Prize, as well as the Bienen School’s 2006 Jean Gimbel Lane Prize in Piano Performance. Recent performance highlights include a recital at the 92nd Street Y and a Mozart Concerto with the New York Philharmonic and Manfred Honeck. He also appeared as soloist with Louis Langrée and the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra. An exclusive Nonesuch recording artist, Goode received exceptional critical acclaim for his 2009 recording of the five Beethoven concertos with the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Iván Fischer. It was released to exceptional critical acclaim, hailed as “a landmark recording” by the Financial Times and nominated for a Grammy Award.
