Richard Goode has been hailed for music-making of tremendous emotional power, depth and expressiveness and has been acknowledged worldwide as one of today’s leading interpreters of Classical and Romantic music. In regular performances with the major orchestras, recitals in the world’s music capitals and through his extensive and acclaimed Nonesuch recordings, he has won a large and devoted following. The New York Times captured the essence of what makes Richard Goode such an original and compelling artist in these words: ‘It is virtually impossible to walk away from one of Mr. Goode’s recitals without the sense of having gained some new insight, subtle or otherwise, into the works he played or about pianism itself’. His discography is extensive and focuses on the core repertory of eighteenth and nineteenth-century composers, including the five Beethoven piano concertos, which have won worldwide acclaim. Goode’s historic recordings of the complete Beethoven sonatas on Nonesuch Records were recently reissued in recognition of the 25th anniversary of this set. Goode served, together with Mitsuko Uchida, as co-Artistic Director of the Marlboro Music School and Festival. 7th LMMC recital.

    About Author

    Founded in 1892 by a group of women amateur musicians, the LMMC embarks on its 125th season of uninterrupted musical activity. Originally all concerts were given by active members with the occasional assistance of local professionals. In 1895 the Club brought to Montreal the Belgian violinist Eugène Ysaÿe, whose recital was such a success that the Ladies increasingly engaged international artists. Horowitz, Serkin, Rubinstein, Heifetz, Milstein, Stern, Rampal, Piatigorsky, Tortelier, Yo-Yo Ma, Lehmann, Ferrier, Souzay, the Budapest, Amadeus, Juilliard Quartets, the Beaux Arts Trio, are but a sampling of those who have performed and, in many cases, made their Montreal debuts at the Club. The long list of Canadian artists includes Saucier, Chamberland, Forrester, Alarie, Donalda, Simoneau, Gould, Turini, the Orford Quartet. The LMMC is a non-profit organization, managed by a volunteer committee. Admission is open to all on a subscription or single-ticket basis.
