Aspen Music Festival: Bach and More: A Recital by Simone Dinnerstein, piano



Harris Concert Hall, 960 N 3rd St., Aspen, CO 81611

Event Description

"Hear one of the piano world’s most inventive, searching, and expressive artists in this Bach and more recital. Simone Dinnerstein brings her distinctive artistry to Harris Concert Hall with a Baroque and Baroque-inspired program. She has been playing Phillip Lasser’s 12 Variations on a Chorale by J.S. Bach for over two decades. In it, the composer takes the chorale from Cantata No. 101 in which, he says, 'Bach chooses a particular melodic moment from the Lutheran hymn and infuses all the other voices of the Chorale with this unique sonority, with an almost maniacal insistence. In my Variations, I take on this mania to see how far one can go.'”
