8:15 p.m., Ford Hall

Hailed for music-making of tremendous emotional power, depth, and sensitivity, pianist Richard Goode probes the inner reaches of works and infuses every measure with the utmost expressivity. His musicianship is an exciting combination of grandness and humility, boldness and depth -- what one critic called, "the boldness of the mind, the depth of the heart."

Goode has been acknowledged worldwide as one of today's leading interpreters of classical and romantic music. As a recitalist, he has become a favorite throughout Europe as well as the United States, including regular appearances in New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Chicago, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Vienna, and the leading cities of Germany and Italy.
