Baltimore gets Goode

The pianist Richard Goode will join the full-time faculty of the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University in the 2021-22 academic year.

He fills the void left by the death this summer of Leon Fleisher.

  • If anyone can, he can. He is actually beyond good. If he can teach, that is. A big career does not make a great teacher. But Peabody has a lot further to go if they want to be a top-notch conservatory.

    • He is an amazing teacher. I had the honor of studying with him and will never forget the many hours we would discuss about music together. Our lessons started at the piano and went on listening to records, book recommendations, etc.

    • Goode makes the first movement of this stunning sonata absolutely shimmer. What a glory of a work it is too.

  • If he is as great a teacher as he is a pianist and chamber music partner, the Peabody has found a worthy successor to the great Leon Fleisher.

    Goode in concert sounds much better than in recordings. I think of him as one of the greatest living exponents of the Viennese classics.

    • I agree. I heard him at the Wigmore Hall in February this year play Bach, Mozart, Chopin and Debussy. Bach and Mozart were phenomenal. Goode is a master pianist.

  • Goode has taught at Mannes for the past 50 years and is going to continue teaching at Mannes while he joins the Peabody faculty.
