World-renowned pianist Richard Goode will join the Bach Virtuosi Festival in recital on Friday, June 23, 2023, in what promises to be one of the major musical events of the season. His program will include Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations, one of Beethoven’s greatest works and will take place at St. Luke’s Cathedral in Portland with its marvelous acoustics. We hope that you will join us for what will be a memorable and very special occasion.
“It is virtually impossible to walk away from one of Mr. Goode’s recitals without the sense of having gained some new insight, subtle or otherwise, into the works he played or about pianism itself.”
— The New York Times
