Simone Dinnerstein returns to Miller Theatre after her Bach concerts this fall with a second concert featuring the music of Philip Glass in his 80th birthday year. This time Simone pairs Glass with Schubert, a composer he not only shares a birthday with—but also a harmonic and spiritual connection.

For Dinnerstein, the interpretation of a musical score requires attention not just to what the piece should sound like, but what it wants to say. “There’s a feeling of narrative in this music, a feeling of speech,” she says of Schubert's Impromptus, which she will juxtapose with works by Glass in this solo recital.
