About the Artist
On the heels of the successful Princeton University Concerts collaboration of countertenor David Daniels and choreographer Mark Morris, two more superlative artists partner in 2013: Grammy-winning pianist Richard Goode and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet C.K. Williams. The New York Times calls the poetry-loving Mr. Goode "a poet of the piano," while Paul Muldoon hails Mr. Williams, who has written of music as "this exaltation, this splendor, this bliss," as "one of the most distinguished poets of his generation." Among the pieces Mr. Goode will perform is Janáček's On an Overgrown Path, one of the works in which the composer expressed his profound despair at the death of his 21-year-old daughter. Missing the partnership of these like-minded poets -- a Princeton exclusive -- would be tragic indeed.
