Beethoven: The Complete Piano Concertosby Richard Goode
Nonesuch Records releases Grammy Award–winning pianist Richard Goode’s first recording of all five Beethoven piano concertos. The five works—spanning three discs—feature the Budapest Festival Orchestra led by the group’s founding conductor, Iván Fischer. Goode is one of very few American pianists to have recorded the complete Beethoven concertos, and the first to do so in nearly 20 years.
This recording continues Goode’s long relationship with the works of Ludwig van Beethoven; in 1993 Nonesuch released a 10-disc set of his performances of the complete Beethoven sonatas, which was nominated for a Grammy and received much critical acclaim.
Goode says, “It has been a great pleasure for me to perform and record the Beethoven concertos with Iván Fischer and his remarkable orchestra. Their superb brio, musical vitality, and total absence of routine have been an inspiration. I hope these performances will be faithful to the spirit of these great works and also reflect the joy of our collaboration.” From the Label
