There is no better artist to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth than the outstanding pianist Richard Goode, renowned for his performances and recordings of the classical giant’s works. Gramophone calls his recording of the complete sonatas “one of the finest interpretations ever put on record” and the Guardian calls it “superb.”

“It is hard to think of any other artist at once technically, temperamentally and intellectually as suited to the challenges of these sonatas.” — The New York Times

“When you’re immersed in Beethoven, you feel that he’s right in the center, and everything else is radiating out from him… Like a Roman architect, he made the structures profoundly right; his works are less destructible than those of other composers…” – Richard Goode
