NewsPianist Richard Goode to Perform at Marlboro
Internationally acclaimed pianist and co-director of the Marlboro Music Festival Richard Goode will perform selections by Bach and Schubert as part of the “Tribute to Rudolf Serkin” concert series in Marlboro College’s new Serkin Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, March 30, at 7:30 p.m.
“What one remembers most from Goode’s playing is not its beauty,—exceptional as it is—but his way of coming to grips with the composer’s central thought, so that a work tends to make sense beyond one’s previous perception of it.” wrote David Blum in The New Yorker.
Goode has appeared with many of the world’s greatest orchestras including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony and the BBC Symphony. An international recitalist, he has performed throughout much of Europe and the United States. Goode is the recipient of many awards, among them the Young Concert Artists Award, the Avery Fisher Prize and a Grammy award with clarinetist Richard Stoltzman for Brahms: the Sonatas for Clarinet and Piano.
The first American-born pianist to record the complete Beethoven sonatas, Goode has made more than two dozen recordings including the Mozart Concerti with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and the complete Partitas by J.S. Bach. Goode studied with Rudolf Serkin at the Curtis Institute, with Nadia Reisenberg at the Mannes College of Music and with Elvira Szigeti and Claude Frank.
This concert is free and open to the public. Tickets are no longer available for this event. The last concert in this series will be performed by internationally renowned pianist Cecile Licad, on April 16. Check this web site for updates soon.
