"In the exquisite slow movements of the second and fourth sonatas, which were the best of the evening, he separated onion-thin layers of delicate voicing and produced countless gradations of gossamer-soft sound."

Posted by: sjacobsohn

"Goode delved into the eight pieces of Brahms' Op. 76 and extracted their poetry and drama to vivid effect, and did the same in Schumann's bipolar "Humoreske."
