WRITTEN PRESS

SELECTED ALBUM OF THE WEEK
"Wonderful pianist and musician by temperament, Joanna Goodale is distinguished first of all by interpretations of Claude Debussy which have something more. Quality of radiance which overflows from the piano for the Reverie of 1890, capacity of reception which extends to infinity for the famous Clair de lune from the Suite bergamasque. These supplements, slipped fleetingly into the original scores, the Franco-Swiss pianist of Anglo-Turkish origin develops them in pieces of her own which extend the Debussys references with as much originality than legitimacy. For the glorious eldest as for his heiress to be discovered, sensation prevails over suggestion (The Sunken Cathedral, Reflections in the Water) and the imagination over the image (And the Moon Descends on the temple that was). Thus Joanna Goodale offers a joyful Giddy Gamelan (animated by gongs and sounding bowls) after having modulated Pagodas with an art that proves that she knows as much about Debussy as e on Balinese music." Pierre Gervasoni

"... This journey is strongest when adaptations of Joanna Goodale's Sufi-music follow directly on her Bach interpretation or when she weaves her own Sufi-like meditations with Bach music (as in" Balkan Bach "). In fact, it becomes audible how similar the spiritual forces are - and thus universal .... "

"[...] The Swiss pianist with a Anglo-Turkish background [...] takes the view that music can transcend boundaries and approach the sublime [...] At the very least, the experiment is unique and interesting, and it is obvious that Joanna Goodale can improvise and play the piano very well. "

“[...] Bach in a Circle is a disc imbued with creativity and a disarming ability to bring together two very distant musical cultures. Joanna Goodale, an irreverent young talent of the piano, manages to enchant an ever-growing audience. "

“[...] All too often this kind of project is more Bach / Sufi collision than Bach / Sufi fusion. But Joanna's classical training [...] means it is often difficult to tell where Bach ends and Goodale begins, which is high praise indeed. "

“Carried by the very essence of music, this brilliant pianist conceived her last opus, Bach Kosmos, according to the model of the ellipse, putting in relation a choice of scores which she has available in a dynamic movement of which she occupies the center "

“The act of creation is a round, an infinite cycle that engages in the work of composers of the past as well as the present. The church echoes this evening with the happy notes of a pianist who composes. It is inspired by the great Jean Sébastien Bach and the Mediterranean worlds. A silent and attentive listening caught the assistance very quickly seduced by this young and beautiful artist who explains to us with simplicity and precision her work made of excellence and sharing ...

A hypnotic ballet of perpetual circles embraces us. A light dance takes our minds into a radiant wandering ...

Joanna's country is made of serenity, purity and an authenticity that knows how to touch us deeply. ”

At the microphone of "Versus-Listening", the young pianist talks about her career, of course, and we discover her personality that we imagine strong and sensitive, in all frankness, sitting at the Bösendorfer piano of the studio for three pieces interpreted, presented , shared, between Bach and his own improvisation work.

How is a melody born under the fingers, adorned with the moment and blossomed in spontaneity? Eternal questions and answers always personal, intimate. Joanna Goodale seems to cultivate naturalness and openness; it's up to us to discover it and let it lead us into its modest and confident universe.

“Rare moment, breath held back, captive audience, spellbound at the first bar. Joanna put together a perfect intelligence program.  The concert begins with Frédéric Chopin's Mazurkas [...] which she presents with a finesse imbued with nostalgia. The tone is set for this concert where Joanna continues with a breathtaking improvisation that she continues with the noble and sentimental Waltzes of Maurice Ravel which she releases all the disturbing expressiveness ...

“... pianist Joanna Goodale's concert sold out on Sunday afternoon at the Cziffra Auditorium. It was a musical journey through the dance proposed by the pianist, with three Mazurkas by Chopin then the Valses nobles et sentimentales by Ravel. Before ending with two Mazurkas by Scriabin, Gurdjieff's mystical dances, collected during his travels in the East, captivated the audience ... "
