Proclaimed “a phenomenon” by the Los Angeles Times and “one of the best pianists of his generation” by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Royal Conservatory alumnus Stewart Goodyear is accomplished as an orchestral soloist, chamber musician, recitalist, and composer. On this evening, you will hear the world premiere of his piano quintet based on themes from Ludwig van Beethoven before he tackles LvB’s final monumental work by paring it down to solo piano and voices.
The Penderecki String Quartet is known for its focus on contemporary chamber music. The Globe and Mail has referred to the quartet’s “remarkable range of technical excellence and emotional sweep,” and Fanfare magazine referred to it as “an ensemble of formidable power and keen musical sensitivity.”
