“Resignation, what a wretched resource! Yet it is all that is left to me,” Beethoven wrote in 1801, despairing at his encroaching deafness and other physical ailments. A sense of resignation and acceptance pervades the triptych of sonatas that he completed in 1822, given majestic, profound readings by the pianist Richard Goode on Wednesday evening at Carnegie Hall.

Mr. Goode has been studying these three sonatas since his youth, estimating that he has performed Opus 110 in some 100 concerts. He has also made much-admired recordings on the Nonesuch label.

But this season marks the first time that he has played all three sonatas together. Among the myriad alluring elements of his performance on Wednesday was the sense of architecture, a narrative arc through calm, suffering, conflict and transformation that proved striking in both the individual sonatas and in the program as a whole. Mr. Goode’s playing throughout was organic and inspired, the noble, introspective themes unfolding with a simplicity that rendered them all the more moving.

The delicate Viennese fortepianos of Beethoven’s era buckled under the force of his playing. The composer Anton Reicha, when turning pages for Beethoven during a Mozart piano concerto in the late 1790s, had to disentwine the instrument’s hammers and strings, which became entangled during the tumultuous performance.

On Wednesday, Mr. Goode — with his wife, the violinist Marcia Weinfeld, at his side as page turner — produced a glowing, warm sound that traversed the full dynamic spectrum from hushed intimacy to agitated power without ever sounding either contrived or harsh.

Interspersed with the sonatas, whose innovative forms and styles depart from the precedents established by Mozart and Haydn, were selections from Beethoven’s Bagatelles (Op. 119). His Leipzig publisher thought that these elegant miniatures were so trite that no one would believe that Beethoven had composed them, but there was nothing trifling about Mr. Goode’s characterful, witty and virtuosic interpretations.

The melody in the concluding passages of the Sonata Opus 111, which concluded the program, unfolded with radiant grace against Mr. Goode’s pearly trills. The audience, quiet and still throughout the evening, applauded eagerly, seeming hopeful for an encore. Mr. Goode offered none, but none was needed — the evening felt perfect and complete just as it was.

He is very good. I love his Beethoven sonatas.

I've heard him a few times but not recently. I thought all the performances were terrific.

I also heard him in one master class at Mannes, and his way of talking/explaining was the most confusing of any master class I've ever heard. But he did play some in the master class. His playing of Bach was incredibly more beautiful the the student he was teaching (who was an advanced student at Mannes).

The trick is to copy a section of the text into Google, and find results that match 100%. wink

The OP is somewhat amiss in quoting someone else's review without crediting the author!

I'd say it's rather more serious than "amiss" - it's probably a pretty serious copyright violation and is likely to land the OP in some serious trouble if he doesn't take it down before he runs out of time to do so.

If he already has, well, there's not much I can say.


Regards,

Polyphonist

If he already has run out of time, that is. Not if he already has taken it down. ha
