Land Title of Walla Walla County and The Walla Walla Symphony present a special “Symphony on the Edge” concert by pianist Simone Dinnerstein, with two performances on Saturday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 17 at 3:00 p.m.
American pianist Simone Dinnerstein is known for her “majestic originality of vision” (the Independent) and her “lean, knowing and unpretentious elegance” (the New Yorker).
The program for this concert will include:
- Arvo Part – “Collage sur B-A-C-H”
- Philip Glass – Piano Concerto No. 3 (written specifically for Simone Dinnerstein)
- Bach – Keyboard Concerto No. 7 in G minor
- Bach – Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G Major
2018 was a banner year for Simone Dinnerstein, including a highly lauded recital at the Kennedy Center, her debut with the London Symphony Orchestra, a live recital for BBC’s Radio Three, and an ambitious season as the first artist-in-residence for Music Worcester, encompassing performances, school outreach, master classes, and lectures. Future highlights include a European tour with Kristjan Jarvi and the Baltic Sea Philharmonic and a residency in San Francisco with the New Century Chamber Orchestra including a collaboration with Daniel Hope and Lynn Harrell for the Beethoven Triple Concerto.
Dinnerstein first attracted attention in 2007 with her self-produced recording of Bach’s “Goldberg Variations.” It was a remarkable success, reaching No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Classical Chart, and established Dinnerstein’s distinctive and original approach. The New York Times called her “a unique voice in the forest of Bach interpretation.” Her career has since taken her around the world from Brazil to Japan and she has made a further eight albums with repertoire from Beethoven to Ravel.
Reserved seating tickets ($30) are available through The Walla Walla Symphony website.
The Walla Walla Symphony is the longest continually-operating symphony orchestra west of the Mississippi, and has been celebrating great music since 1907.
