With his authority and superhuman capacity for insight, Richard Goode may be the definitive classical pianist of the last half-century. The Grammy and Avery Fisher Prize winner sets a new standard of excellence for the complete Beethoven sonatas with his acclaimed recording for Nonesuch, and currently serves as the co-artistic director of the prestigious Marlboro Music School. For Duke Performances, Goode brings ... a program including Schumann's Kreisleriana— a wonderfully dramatic work dedicated to Chopin — and Chopin's final piano sonata, his most ambitious attempt at the form.
Related event: A conversation between Richard Goode and Duke professor R. Larry Todd on Wednesday, April 18, at 6:30 pm at the First Presbyterian Church at 305 E. Main Street in downtown Durham. Free.
