The Subscription Series opens with the esteemed pianist Richard Goode, whose performances “it is virtually impossible to walk away from…without the sense of having gained some new insight, subtle or otherwise, in the works he played or about pianism itself” (The New York Times). A magisterial presence at the keyboard, he is revered as “one of the finest pianists in the world” (The Washington Post). His elegantly crafted program includes Debussy’s Images, Book II, and Bach’s Partita No. 5, a buoyant work of joyous virtuosity.
