Proclaimed "a phenomenon" by the Los Angeles Times and "one of the best pianists of his generation" by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Stewart Goodyear is an accomplished young pianist as a concerto soloist, chamber musician, recitalist and composer. In March 2015, Stewart played all 32 Beethoven sonatas in recital, in a single day, in Dallas TX. Mr. Goodyear's recording of Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto and Grieg's Piano Concerto, with the Czech National Symphony under Stanislav Bogunia, was released to critical acclaim on the Steinway and Sons label in June 2014. For his third Steinway & Sons label release, the Canadian, by way of Toronto, pianist returns to the music of Tchaikovsky, only this time with a world premiere recording, of the complete Nutcracker ballet arranged for and recorded on solo piano. “A high-octane performance that punches above its weight.” – Gramophone Magazine on Tchaikovsky & Grieg Concertos (STNS 30035) “Exultantly phrased, expertly articulated and expansively engineered… first-rate…” – BBC Music Magazine on Rachmaninov Concertos 2 & 3 (STNS 30047)
