Notes and Editorial Reviews

On Bach Inventions & Sinfonias, pianist Simone Dinnerstein reconnects with the foundation of her musical career and what she’s best known for – a solo album of J.S. Bach’s keyboard works. Dinnerstein gained an international following with the remarkable success of her self-funded recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Released in 2007, the album was #1 on the Billboard Traditional Classical Chart in its first week of sales and was named to many “Best of” lists including the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and the New Yorker. Her Sony Classical debut album, Bach: A Strange Beauty, was also #1 on the Billboard Traditional Classical chart when it was released in 2011. Bach Inventions & Sinfonias (commonly known as the 3-part Read more inventions), features beautiful, well-known music by one of the most popular composers of all time, performed by the pianist that is one of the top Bach interpreters of all time.

Simone Dinnerstein, a graduate of the Juilliard School, is an inventive artist who is motivated by a desire to find the musical core of every work she approaches. The Independent praises the “majestic originality of her vision” and NPR reports “She actively listens to every note she plays, and the result is a wonderfully expressive interpretation.” Dinnerstein’s schedule has taken her around the world since her tri- umphant New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall in 2005, performing with such world famous orchestras as the New York Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony, Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, and she has also performed at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival and the Ravinia Festival.
