News & Reviews

  • Richard Goode's Beethoven: The Complete Sonatas, first released on Nonesuch in 1993 and nominated for a Grammy Award, is available once again on CD, now at a new, lower price. The box set includes ten individual CD sleeves and a forty-page booklet with the original liner note by the late musicologist Michael Steinberg. "An outstanding set," exclaims the New York Times. "It is hard to think of any other artist at once technically, temperamentally and intellectually as suited to the challenges of these sonatas." The Guardian calls it "superb." Gramophone says it's "one of the finest interpretations ever put on record."

  • Richard Goode, the Budapest Festival Orchestra, and conductor Iván Fischer tour the US with music from their Nonesuch recording of the complete Beethoven piano concertos for the first time. The all-Beethoven program, which varies from night to night, pairs either concerto No. 2 or 4 with two symphonies per night, from among No. 1, 5, 8, and 9. The concerts begin at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark this Saturday, followed by Lincoln Center in New York City, Chicago Symphony Center, Ann Arbor's Hill Auditorium, and Boston Symphony Hall.
