Stewart Goodyear, pianist in recital / pianiste en récital


This page is also available in / Cette page est également disponible en: Francais (French)

Known for imagination, a graceful, elegant style and exquisite technique, Stewart Goodyear is an accomplished young artist whose career spans many genres. He began his professional training at the Royal Conservatory of Music in his native city, received a bachelor’s degree from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, and completed a Master’s Degree at the Juilliard School of Music in New York, where he now lives. At the core of his repertory are the 32 Beethoven sonatas, recordings of which Jed Distler in ClassicsToday called “intelligently stylish. Swift tempos, forward sweep, linear clarity, imaginative yet never mannered inflections, and genuine joy in executing the composer’s volatile dynamic markings all characterize Goodyear’s interpretations”. Goodyear makes headlines for his performances of all 32 sonatas in a single day. David Patrick Stearns of the Philadelphia Inquirer mused that Goodyear just might be “in the rarefied league of Maurizio Pollini”. In addition to his prowess as a pianist, Goodyear is also known as a skilled improviser and composer. He wrote his first composition at the age of eight. Return LMMC engagement.
