Notes and Editorial Reviews

[Goode's] playing is so very likeable: the finish, technical and musical, is immaculate, but on top of that he’s exciting. His sound always makes you listen. His feeling for it and for fine gradations of sound from one end of his wide dynamic range to the other are those of a virtuoso, and inform everything he does. When he’s more obviously on virtuoso territory, he responds to the demands for brilliance and thrilling projection as to the manner born. He’s constantly inside the music, and what a lively, cultivated, lucid and stimulating guide he is... His interpretation of the A major Sonata, Op 101, is one of the finest ever put on record.

– Gramophone

"What makes Goode's readings so exquisite is the
Read more degree to which he has tapped into an ideal but elusive combination of the opposing qualities that great Beethoven playing demands – a careful balance of technical rigor and unbridled emotion...." – Allan Kozinn, The New York Times Essential Library: Classical Music Read less
