Richard Goode

30 Jul 2023 | 20:00 | St John the Evangelist Church, Iffley Rd

Beethoven Bagatelles Op. 119, Nos 6–11 
Beethoven Sonata No. 30 in E major, Op. 109
Beethoven Diabelli Variations, Op. 120

Beethoven’s new vision for music coincided with major developments in piano technology. The result was the first piano music that could whisper, sing, thunder and orate. Beethoven aficionado Richard Goode comes to the atmospheric surroundings of St John the Evangelist Church for this portrait of Beethoven the pianist. He starts with the carefree and occasionally eccentric Bagatelles before traversing the contrasting emotional states of the composer’s Piano Sonata No. 30 and finally, the extraordinary exploration of mood, movement and mindset that is the composer’s epic Diabelli Variations.
