Coolidge Auditorium

Richard Goode has won a large and devoted following worldwide for poetic and illuminating performances in which his “penetrating intellect, warm heart and nimble fingers are entirely placed at the composer’s service” (The Times). This concert—unique to the Library—offers the rare chance to hear him in both solo and chamber roles. Convening three talented colleagues for performances of chamber works from the heart of the Romantic repertoire, he also plays Robert Schumann’s brilliant, seldom-heard Humoreske for solo piano.
