Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 (v. 1740)

Simone Dinnerstein, piano

Simone Dinnerstein is a critically lauded pianist whose thoughtful and compelling interpretations have captivated audiences all over the world. The Independent praises the “majestic originality of her vision” and NPR reports, “She compels the listener to follow her on a journey of discovery filled with unscheduled detours . . . She’s actively listening to every note she plays and the result is a wonderfully expressive interpretation.” The Brooklyn-based pianist gained an international audience following the remarkable success of her recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, which she raised the funds to record. The four solo albums Dinnerstein has released since then have also topped the classical charts and she was is a regular presence on the best-selling artists on the Billboard Classical Chart.

“…an individual, compelling performance, making use of a level of coloration beyond the palette Bach knew”
— The New York Times

“She brought out the fanciful flights, contrapuntal intricacy and occasional strangeness in these ingenious little works”
— The New York Times

“The intense conviction she communicates is so arresting that, for me, hearing her rendition of a piece makes it impossible to imagine it performed any other way.”
— The Paris Review
