We invite you to the Music Room for an intimate piano recital by the incomparable Richard Goode, hailed as one of the “finest pianists in the world” (The Washington Post). Goode, known in particular for his interpretations of Beethoven, will offer one of the composer’s late masterpieces, the Sonata Op. 101, together with Debussy’s enchanting Preludes, Book II. The program begins with Renaissance and Baroque masters Byrd and J.S. Bach.

“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

Caramoor favorite and esteemed scholar Richard Kogan returns to continue his series diving into the Mind & Music of the composers and musicians whose works we know and love but whose minds tell us a deeper story. Marking Leonard Bernstein’s centenary, Dr. Kogan, a Juilliard-trained pianist, will combine his lecture with performance examples that are as relevant as they are technically masterful.

“I came away from this extraordinary lecture and performance deeply moved by a fascinating presentation that only Dr. Kogan, psychiatrist and concert pianist, can deliver.” — Yo-Yo Ma
