Simone Dinnerstein to Play Glass and Schubert at Miller Theatre / Broadway World

Bookmark and Share

Simone Dinnerstein returns to Miller Theatre(Columbia University School of the Arts) on Thursday, January 18, after her Bach concerts this fall with a second concert featuring the music of Philip Glass in his 80th birthday year. This time Simone pairs Glass with Schubert, a composer he not only shares a birthday with-but also a harmonic and spiritual connection. For Dinnerstein, the interpretation of a musical score requires attention not just to what the piece should sound like, but what it wants to say. "There's a feeling of narrative in this music, a feeling of speech," she says of Schubert's Impromptus, which she will juxtapose with works by Glass in this solo recital. PROGRAM includes:

Philip Glass: Selected Etudes and Metamorphosis (1988)
Franz Schubert: Impromptus, Op. 90 (1827)
Schubert: Sonata in B-flat Major, D. 960, BWV 1058 (1828)
