Simone Dinnerstein interviews with WDAV for - Bach Inventions & Sinfonias

Bookmark and Share

Bach wrote his Inventions and Sinfonias in 1723 as a musical guide for keyboard players, and they remain a core part of the piano repertoire. The Inventions are the first keyboard pieces by Bach pianist Simone Dinnerstein remembers hearing, and at first, she confesses she never thought she'd be able to master them. But master them she has, and her latest release on Sony Classical, J.S. Bach's Inventions & Sinfonias, features these beloved works.

Dinnerstein herself joins WDAV-Davidson NC: 'Biscuits and Bach' host Rachel Stewart to talk about the recording and the importance of Bach to her as a musician. And if you've ever wondered what exactly counterpoint is, she explains it in plain English.
