Sarah Shafer, soprano Richard Goode, piano
Acclaimed for “gleaming, powerful vocalism and a probing dramatic intelligence” (San Francisco Gate), American soprano Sarah Shafer possesses “a poised presence that easily projects both vulnerability and backbone” (The New York Times). “The freshness, purity and agility of her voice were complemented by the charm of her singing,” admires the Chicago Tribune.
Her recital partner at Spivey Hall, as at the Marlboro Music Festival and New York’s Town Hall, is Richard Goode, “one of the finest pianists in the world” (The Washington Post). “When mind and fingers are equally nimble, as they are in the playing of Richard Goode, the result is consummate music-making, a joyous and captivating display of luminous intelligence” (The Oregonian).
