Simone Dinnerstein is a searching and inventive artist who is motivated by a desire to find the musical core of every work she approaches. The New York-based pianist gained an international following with the remarkable success of her Bach: Goldberg Variations recording, which she independently raised the funds to record. Dinnerstein's performance schedule has taken her around the world since her acclaimed debut at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall in 2005, to venues including the Kennedy Center, Vienna Konzerthaus, Berlin Philharmonie, Sydney Opera House, Seoul Arts Center, and London's Wigmore Hall. Her live work includes; Lincoln Center - Mostly Mozart, Aspen, Verbier, and Ravinia festivals, as well as performances with the New York Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Dresden Philharmonic, Staatskapelle Berlin, RAI National Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orquestra a Sinfonica Brasileira, and the Tokyo Symphony.

Recorded in Cuba, Dinnerstein's recent Sony Classical release - Mozart in Havana may be her most ambitious to date and is a testament to music's ability to cross all cultural and language barriers. For it, Dinnerstein has collaborated with the virtuosic Havana Lyceum Orchestra to perform Mozart's Piano Concerto Nos. 21 and 23.
