Simone Dinnerstein's new album is a testament to the ability of music to cross cultural barriers. Her connection with Cuba started early with Solomon Mikowsky, a Cuban émigré who became her piano teacher when she was nine years old. When he inaugurated a music festival in Havana in 2013, he invited Dinnerstein to play. Returning in 2015, she played for the first time with the Havana Lyceum Orchestra and was deeply impressed. Within a year she had returned to record Mozart's Piano Concertos Nos 21 and 23.
