Pianist Simone Dinnerstein to give recital at Goucher College
Simone Dinnerstein, one of the most interesting pianists on the scene today, will be presented in recital at Goucher College as part of the 52nd Annual Henry and Ruth Blaustein Rosenberg Lecture-Performance.
Dinnerstein will play excerpts from her just-out album on the Sony label, "Something Almost Being Said: The Music of Bach and Schubert." It's a gem of a recording, typical of the pianist's work -- technically refined and artistically eloquent.
Her account of Schubert's Impromptus, Op. 90, is quite impressive -- check out the video below of No. 3 in G-flat, played with exquisitely intimate phrasing.
As Dinnerstein explains: "Bach and Schubert's melodic lines are ...
so fluent, so expressive, and so minutely inflected that they sound as though they might at any moment burst suddenly into speech. They sound like something almost being said."
The recital, which offers the Impromptus and Bach's Partita No. 1 in B-flat, will be at 7 p.m. March 4 in Kraushaar Auditorium. Thanks to the Louis and Henrietta Blaustein Foundation, which supports the annual Rosenberg Lecture-Performance, tickets are only $10 (free for Goucher students ).
