Widely regarded as the heir to the mantle of his teacher Rudolf Serkin in the Mozart-Beethoven-Schubert-Brahms repertory, pianist Richard Goode is acclaimed for the tremendous emotional power, depth and sensitivity of his playing—a rare combination of grandness and humility, boldness and depth. Acclaimed for his remarkable recordings of the six Bach partitas, Goode immerses himself once again in the canon of Leipzig's great kapellmeister, offering PCMS audiences an opportunity to hear an artist who 'has done as much as any important pianist to reclaim Bach for the piano' (Gramophone).
