New CD of the Week | Dinnerstein: Something Almost Being Said: Music of Bach and Schubert

 

On sale now here.

 

Pianist Simone Dinnerstein says of her new album, Something Almost Being Said, “Bach and Schubert, to my ears, they share a distinctive quality. Their non-vocal music has a powerful narrative, a vocal element. The effect is that of wordless voices singing textless melodies. Bach and Schubert’s melodic lines are so fluent, so expressive, and so minutely inflected that they sound as though they might at any moment burst suddenly into speech.” 

 

Inspired by lines from Philip Larkin’s poem, The Trees, Dinnerstein brings her own unique voice to Bach’s first two Partitas and Schubert’s Four Impromptus revealing the inherent vocal qualities in these instrumental works.  Click below to listen to Larkin read his poem, "The Trees".

 

Dinnerstein is scheduled to appear at the Chautauqua Auditorium in Boulder for the opening night concert of this summer's Colorado Music Festival.  Details here.
