The Ladies’ Morning Musical Club presents

Stewart Goodyear

Proclaimed “a phenomenon” by the Los Angeles Times and “one of the best pianists of his generation” by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Stewart Goodyear is an accomplished concert pianist, improviser and composer.

Known for imagination, a graceful, elegant style, and exquisite technique, Canadian Stewart Goodyear is a pianist whose career spans many genres. He studied at the Royal Conservatory of Music in his native Toronto, received a Bachelor’s Degree from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, and completed a Master’s Degree at the Juilliard School of Music in New York, where he now lives. At the core of his repertory are the 32 Beethoven sonatas, recordings of which Jed Distler in Classics Today called “intelligently stylish. Swift tempos, forward sweep, linear clarity, imaginative yet never mannered inflections and genuine joy in executing the composer’s volatile dynamic markings all characterize Goodyear’s interpretations.”

In addition to his prowess as a pianist, Goodyear is also known as a skilled improviser and a composer. Recent commissions include a Piano Quintet for the Penderecki String Quartet, and a solo work for the 2022 Honens Piano Competition in Calgary. Orchid Classics has released Goodyear’s recording of his own piano sonata and his suite for piano and orchestra, Callaloo. Another CD of special interest is entitled For Glenn Gould, which combines repertory from Gould’s debut recitals in Montreal and the U.S. His recording of his own transcription of Tchaikovsky’s complete Nutcracker ballet was chosen by the New York Times as one of the best classical music recordings of 2015.
