Richard Goode's performance Saturday night, a benefit for the Candlelight Concert Society, was simply superb. The compositions in the beautifully chosen program - Bach's Partita No. 6, Schoenberg's Six Little Piano Pieces, Op. 19, Beethoven's Sonata Op. 109, Debussy's Preludes, Volume I, and, as an encore, Chopin's Nocturne Op. 55 No. 2 - highlighted contrasting periods and styles, but the evening's performance was unified by an emphasis on sonority, clarity...

The great poems of Goethe have always attracted great composers. So it was only appropriate last night in the Candlelight Series at Howard Community College that a program of Goethe settings attracted two of the country's finest musicians, soprano Dawn Upshaw and pianist Richard Goode.Concerts don't get any better than this program of lieder by Schumann, Schubert and Wolf.Upshaw is best known as an interpreter in the Jan DeGaetani mold -- i.e. a singer who puts across the most difficult 20th-century compositions and makes them accessible.

Richard Goode plays sonatas in recital todayFamiliarity does not breed contempt where Richard Goode is concerned. This wonderful pianist's annual appearances in the Candlelight Concert series at Howard Community College's Smith Theatre are highlights of the music season in the Baltimore-Washington area. His recital at 3 p.m. today, the first in this season's Candlelight series, should be outstanding even by Goode's standards. His recording of the Beethoven sonata cycle for the Nonesuch label is a landmark, and this afternoon's recital consists entirely of Beethoven sonatas, including the titanic "Appasssionata."

Richard Goode is known as an immaculate pianist: an elegant interpreter of Beethoven and Schubert, a sensitive accompanist and chamber musician.But if it weren't for his not-so-immaculate private life, in which procrastination and messiness play a large part, he would not be married to violinist Marcia Weinfeld nor would he perform recitals with her -- one of which is Saturday at the Rouse Theatre in Columbia.Goode and Weinfeld have been married 11 years as of last week. They met when she was a violinist in the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Ottawa in Canada.

'Dog in the Manger' The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company will present the world premiere of a new verse translation of Dog in the Manger, a 17th century comedy by Lope de Vega, at the Howard County Center for the Arts tomorrow. One of more than 2,000 plays by the prolific writer known as the "Spanish Shakespeare," Dog in the Manger takes its title from an Aesop fable and focuses on a countess who falls in love with her male secretary, a man below her social station. The play attracted renewed attention when it was revived by the Royal Shakespeare Company last year.

Two weeks after being the host for Elmar Oliveira, a violinist's violinist, Candlelight Concerts of Columbia is poised to present a pianist's pianist Sunday. Richard Goode is not known for his fire-breathing renditions of warhorses such as the Tchaikovsky 1st and Rachmaninoff 3rd piano concertos. He plays Chopin beautifully, but in a scrupulously crafted manner that's short on flash and dash, and I'm not sure he's ever closed a recital with a razzle-dazzle transcription of "Carmen" or Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever."

The world has never lacked for accomplished pianists. Genuine keyboard artists who have something meaningful to say are a rarer breed. One of them is a 60-year-old New Yorker who has been performing for four decades with quiet authority and technique to spare. He's Richard Goode, and he's right up there with the best. Goode's international career, full of prizes and plaudits, has taken him just about everywhere, in recital and in collaboration with orchestras, chamber musicians and singers.

Mozart Piano Concerto No. 19 and No. 27. Richard Goode, pianist; Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. (Nonesuch 79608-2) Mozart's piano concertos, each one a miniature opera with every type of character and emotion, seem to bring out the best in keyboard artists and orchestras. The recording catalogs already offer such treasurable partnerships as pianist Murray Perahia and the English Chamber Orchestra or Robert Casadesus and the Cleveland Orchestra, for example. But there is always room for another exalted collaboration, and that we have in Richard Goode and the conductor-less Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.
