IN PERFORMANCE WITH SARAH SHAFER, soprano
Mr. Goode was quite taken with Sarah Shafer's talents while at the Marlboro Festival. Ms. Shafer has been praised for her "luminous voice" and "intensely expressive interpretations," (The New York Times), and named “remarkable, artistically mature,” and “a singer to watch” by Opera News. Together, in a glorious program of Schubert, Brahms and Mahler, the renowned pianist and rising-star soprano have won over audiences, as well as The New York Times, who wrote: "a poised presence that easily projects both vulnerability and backbone"..."polished yet essayistic and almost extemporaneous."
THE CULMINATION OF CREATIVITY
In music, Beethoven was creating some of his ultimate statement as he was losing his hearing. In art, Monet was acclaimed for his later works as he was losing his eyesight. The Culmination of Creativity offers the opportunity to explore the crowning works on many different disciplines. Panel discussions on the creative process in different fields add yet another dimension to the project. Organizations currently curating projects are Carnegie Hall, the Boston Symphony Orchestras, and the University Musical Society, among others.
LATE AND LATEST
In this project, late works of masters of the past are juxtaposed with newly created works by some of the most compelling creative artists today. Repertoire ranges from works for solo piano to string quartets, lieder and vocal chamber music. Each creative partner can tailor the project to what would be most relevant for their audience.
