“Goode has so thoroughly entered into the spirit of the compositions he performs that you’d swear the composer himself was at the keyboard.”
— Toronto Globe and Mail

“Richard Goode is one of the finest pianists in the world. Few can match his unfailingly beautiful tone, effortless technical command, interpretive insight and total emotional commitment to the music he plays.”
— The Washington Post

“Every time we hear him, he impresses us as better than we remembered, surprising us, surpassing our expectations and communicating perceptions that stay in the mind.”
— Gramophone

“It is virtually impossible to walk away from one of Mr. Goode’s recitals without the sense of having gained some new insight, subtle or otherwise, into the works he played or about pianism itself.”
— The New York Times
