“On Saturday, July 30, Stewart Goodyear, a rising star among Canadian pianists, who has made multiple appearances as a soloist with top tier orchestras in both Canada and the US, including six with the Philadelphia Orchestra, performs Beethoven’s Tempest [Sonata in D minor Op. 31 #2] and Waldstein [Sonata in C major Op. 53] sonatas, and then joins the Gould String Quartet in Brahms’ Piano Quintet, Op. 34.”

Presented at St Marks Anglican Church in Niagara on the Lake, Mr Goodyear will share his powerful appreciation of Beethoven’s sonatas with audiences at the Festival.
“Since I first learned them when I was 16, these sonatas will not leave me alone. Life has given me very personal interpretations of these works, and I humbly share them with the listener.”
