Richard Goode returns to the festival and to the stunning acoustic of the chapel of Merton College for this recital, which culminates in the music of the composer associated with the piano literature more than any other. Chopin transformed the music of his Polish homeland in his mazurkas, creating landscapes in miniature designed for western audiences that transcend their proportions and origins. Before Chopin, elder statesman of the piano Goode explores the watercolour world of Debussy, the heavenly perfection of Mozart and Brahms’s last statement for the piano.
The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 22:15.
