Great Artists I

The musicians on Great Artists I are all outstanding, compelling performers. Through their daring interpretations, they reveal the complex emotions behind the music. Whether it is an all-Brahms program from the Emerson String Quartet with Yefim Bronfman, Schubert impromptus played by Radu Lupu, or Beethoven sonatas with Richard Goode, the familiar becomes new and extraordinary in their hands.

If there’s one pianist who challenges you to hear classical music in a whole new way, it’s Radu Lupu. Since winning the Van Cliburn Competition in 1966, he’s gained a loyal following for his idiosyncratic interpretations that always explore the complex emotions behind the music. Expect nothing different on this recital, which includes music by Franck, Schubert, and Debussy.

“It is virtually impossible to walk away from one of Richard Goode’s recitals without the sense of having gained some new insight, subtle or otherwise, into the works he played or about pianism itself,” wrote Allan Kozinn in The New York Times. By now, superlative descriptions of this eminent American pianist have become commonplace anywhere he plays.
