Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

Pianist Stewart Goodyear is a young lion in the piano world. He's not yet 30, but he's been on the concert stage for well over a decade. Here he plays a pair of encores in Atlanta's Spivey Hall: "Concert Arabesques on the Blue Danube," an arrangement by Andrei Schultz-Evler of Johann Strauss, Jr.'s Blue Danube Waltz; and "Embraceable You," by George Gershwin, in an arrangement by Earl Wild.
