A New Album from Simone Dinnerstein
Mon, 09 Jul 2018

Orange Mountain Music recently released a new album from pianist Simone Dinnerstein. The disc includes the familiar Keyboard Concerto #7 in G minor, BWV 1058 by Johann Sebastian Bach along with a new work written specifically for Dinnerstein by one of today’s top composer’s, Philip Glass. Dinnerstein performs both the Bach concerto and the Third Piano Concerto from Glass in collaboration with the Boston-based chamber orchestra A Far Cry. WGUC had the opportunity to chat with Simone Dinnerstein about her latest album. Here’s what she had to say about first meeting Philip Glass, which eventually led to him writing a concerto for her:  She’s collaborated with A Far Cry Before:  Dinnerstein was overwhelmed upon receiving the score to Glass’s Third Piano Concerto:  The Piano Concerto #3 is iconic Philip Glass and certainly one that minimalism fans will want to check out. This new album provides a solid performance from Simone Dinnerstein and A Far Cry, connecting two prolific composers from opposite ends of history.
