Stewart Goodyear

Goodyear brings an exceptional beauty and sparkling dazzle to these works that is nothing short of extraordinary.
— Gapplegate Review

Regarded as one of the finest pianists of his generation, Goodyear is already a seasoned veteran of orchestras and concert stages worldwide, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Bournemouth Symphony, Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Montreal Symphony, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Dallas Symphony, Atlanta Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Detroit Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.

Also known as an improviser and composer, Stewart Goodyear has been commissioned by orchestras and chamber music organizations, and performs his own solo works. Last season, he premiered his suite for piano and orchestra, "Callaloo," with Kristjan Jarvi and MDR Symphony Orchestra in Leipzig, and in July of this year, the Clarosa Quartet will premiere his Piano Quartet commissioned by the Kingston Chamber Music Festival. Mr. Goodyear performed all 32 Beethoven Piano Sonatas in one day at Koerner Hall, McCarter Theatre, the Mondavi Center, and the AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas.

This extraordinary program pairs a late Beethoven treasure with the spectacular color of Ravel and the majesty of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.
