It has been a good year for 25-year-old violinist Randall Goosby, who gives a recital on Sunday December 5th at St. James Place in Great Barrington. In June, Decca released their debut recording âRoots,â a delightful collection of works inspired by African American culture that beautifully showcases the fresh, mellow quality of his playing. Also in early summer, Goosby is appeared on the COVID-era television production of the annual Kennedy Center Honors. Among his many recent concerts, he has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and conductor Gustavo Dudamel at the Hollywood Bowl.
âI didn’t expect things to start exploding during the pandemic. Like so many friends and colleagues, I was at home putting virtual concerts online. But Decca had been looking for me for about a year and a half, âGoosby explains.
