    Richard Goode, Budapest Festival Orchestra Bring Beethoven Tour to US
    Michael Wilson

    Richard Goode and the Budapest Festival Orchestra, led by the group’s founding conductor Iván Fischer, reunite to tour the United States with music from their 2009 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 David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City, Chicago Symphony Center, Ann Arbor's Hill Auditorium, and Boston Symphony Hall. See below for details and tickets or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    With the 2009 release of the album, Goode became one of very few American pianists to have recorded the complete Beethoven concertos, and the first to do so in nearly 20 years. The Financial Times gave the three-disc set five stars and declared it a "landmark recording of the Beethoven concertos." The New Yorker wrote: “Goode offers truly revelatory playing, turning that shameless virtuoso showcase into a vibrant, three-dimensional creation.” To purchase the set, head to the Nonesuch Store now.

    Sadly, Goode's frequent producer Max Wilcox, who also produced several albums by Dawn Upshaw among many others, has died. You can read the New York Times obituary on his storied life at nytimes.com.

    Brad Mehldau's new album, Suite: April 2020, is now available on CD and standard vinyl, following the release of the digital and limited-edition deluxe vinyl editions earlier this year. While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, along with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him. One thousand numbered and signed copies of the deluxe edition were sold, with a minimum of $90 from each sale donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund. Brad Mehldau has several solo concerts in Europe ahead.
