Simone Dinnerstein: A Character of Quiet

Simone Dinnerstein

Pianist Simone Dinnerstein first came to prominence in 2007, when she self-produced a landmark recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Now she joins us to talk about her latest album A Character of Quiet, which pairs etudes by Philip Glass with the final piano sonata of Franz Schubert. Born of the pandemic, A Character of Quiet (recorded at Simone's home in Brooklyn) explores the nature of solitude – and reflects on the struggle between hope and hopelessness felt by so many people, especially in the age of Covid-19.
