Stewart Goodyear BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Canadian pianist Stewart Goodyear’s Beethoven concerto cycle of 2020 was met with huge critical acclaim. This September will see a very special; limited production vinyl release for Beethoven’s final; and arguably greatest piano concerto; the Emperor. Praise for Goodyear’s concerto cycle on original release: “Goodyear… is a pianist of tremendous clarity and precision. He has a beautiful; silver sound; with perfectly lucid trills that must be the envy of his colleagues.” Patrick Rucker; Gramophone; “Would this deep obsession give his Complete Beethoven Piano Concertos edge or distinction in a crowded market? Yes. The results are fleet-fingered; insightful and imaginative; capturing an essential sense of improvisation in the cadenzas…” Fiona Maddocks; The Guardian
