Simone Dinnerstein, Piano
Part of Harriman-Jewell Series
Pianist Simone Dinnerstein makes her Series debut with the first multi-media production she has conceived, created, and directed, which uses as source materials her father Simon Dinnerstein’s painting The Fulbright Triptych and Charles Ives’s Piano Sonata No. 2 (Concord). The program consists of live performance visuals, camera work, and paintings to heighten Ives’ demanding Concord Sonata. Dinnerstein’s program seeks to highlight the connections between Ives and the Transcendentalists.
Dinnerstein has played with orchestras ranging from the New York Philharmonic and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra to the London Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale Rai. She has performed in venues from Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center to the Berlin Philharmonie, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Seoul Arts Center and the Sydney Opera House. She has made thirteen albums, all of which topped the Billboard classical charts, with repertoire ranging from Couperin to Glass.
