Celebrated pianist Simone Dinnerstein will offer a unique evening of music that highlights the careers and influence of Philip Glass and Franz Schubert. The performance, which will take place Thursday, Jan. 18 at New York City's Miller Theatre, also serves as a tribute to Glass, who is being fêted this year for his 80th birthday.

Dinnerstein has become well known for a number reasons, especially her recording of Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations. She has played most of the major concert halls of the world, including Carnegie Hall in New York City, the Konzerthaus in Vienna and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. On the program are Glass' Selected Etudes and 1988's Metamorphosis. Schubert is represented with Impromptus, Op. 90 from 1827 and Sonata in B-flat Major from 1828.
