Legendary Piano Variations – Stewart Goodyear
September 27, 2015 @ 3:15 pm - 5:00 pm
Proclaimed “one of the best pianists of his generation” by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Stewart Goodyear is an accomplished young artist known for his incredible concentration at the piano. He has performed all 32 Beethoven piano sonatas in one day on many occasions! Born in Toronto, he has appeared with major orchestras of the world including the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and NHK Symphony Orchestra. He opens our season with two piano blockbusters by two revered composers.
“…a crisp, emotionally radiant performance that combined dexterity and sensitivity in equal measure. Goodyear’s delivery of this music was breathtaking.” – San Francisco Chronicle
“Goodyear is a phenomenon who deserves wide attention.” – Los Angeles Times
“In an era where few unambiguously great Diabelli Variations recordings grace the catalog as individual releases… I embrace Goodyear’s mindful mastery and integrity with open arms and grateful ears.” – Classics Today
Stewart will perform J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations and Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations.
