“Alluring lyricism and golden-age tenderness”
The New York Times
The stunning talents of 24-year-old Sphinx Competition-winning violinist Goosby were first discovered by Itzhak Perlman, with whom Goosby studied at Juilliard, and chronicled recently in a major feature in The New York Times. His playing is sumptuously in the Perlman vein — an incredibly rich and lush tone, and tremendous color, depth and expressivity. Goosby’s musical partner is the tremendously talented Young Concert Artist-winning pianist Zhu Wang, who makes his solo Carnegie Hall debut later this year. Their program features a Mozart sonata perfect for showcasing their artistry; three gorgeous, melodic works of Florence Price, arguably the first major female African American composer; and Franck’s A-Major Sonata — filled with sheer Romantic excess in the finest sense, bravura passages and beautiful interplay, and a fabulous showpiece for both violinist and pianist.
