The pianist of pianists. When the American pianist Richard Goode recorded all 32 of Beethoven's sonatas in the early 90s, the reviews were unanimous: The disc set was declared a 'landmark recording' and Goode's name has been associated with Beethoven since then. Richard Goode is acclaimed for music-making of tremendous emotional power, depth and expressiveness, and has been referred to both as the pianist's pianist and as America's best kept secret. When he visited the Bergen International Festival over ten years ago, critics used words such as 'pure delight', 'shivers down the spine' and 'shining eyes'. For his recital in Håkonshallen Richard Goode has selected Beethoven's Sonatas no. 28 and 31 and his last piano work, the Bagatelles of opus 126, whose playful and lyrical nature complement the severity of Bach's Partita no 6. He had also recently 'felt an urgent need to play Chopin – especially mazurkas,' and added the F sharp minor Polonaise, which 'combines a Beethovenian power and a beautiful inner mazurka.'
