Pianist Simone Dinnerstein, currently nominated for a 2021 Grammy Award in the category of Best Classical Instrumental Solo, is presented by Miller Theatre at Columbia University (2960 Broadway, at 116th Street) on Thursday March 31, 2022. This performance is part of the Miller Theatre’s Bach Series for its 2021-2022 season.
Dinnerstein, who is heralded for her distinctive musical voice and her commitment to sharing classical music with everyone, will present a performance of J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations, found on her self-produced, breakout solo album of the same name.
In August 2007, the album was released on Telarc, earning the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Classical Chart during its first week of sales. It also appeared on "Best of 2007" lists including those of the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the New Yorker, several radio stations, iTunes "Editor's Choice Best Classical," Amazon.com Best CDs of 2007, and Barnes & Noble's Top 5 Debut CDs of 2007. In September 2008, the recording received the prestigious Diapason d'Or Award.
Gramophone describes Dinnerstein’s rendition of Bach’s work as “serious-minded and earnest in intent.” The New York Times said Dinnerstein’s recording “is a distinctive approach to [the Goldberg Variations]: colorful and idiosyncratic, a contemporary pianist’s rather than a harpsichordist’s account.”
