Bach and the Romantics

Simone Dinnerstein

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Best known for her inspired recording of Bach’sGoldberg Variations, Brooklyn-based pianist Simone Dinnerstein offers selections from her forthcoming CD in this first solo recital at Miller, again breathing fresh air into the music of Bach. Her inventive program alternates between Bach’s partitas and gems of the Romantic era by Brahms, Chopin, and Schubert, juxtaposing evocative nocturnes, intermezzos, and impromptus with Baroque dance-inspired courantes, allemandes, and sarabandes.
