“When things heat up, the room seems ready to burst into flames,” raved the Washington Post following Simone Dinnerstein’s “spellbinding” recital last winter at the Kennedy Center. “Her “intoxicatingly rich, velvety sound always retains agility and translucence.” Now you can hear this magical program, which synthesizes in a seamless arc the elegance of the French Baroque in two works by Couperin, the hypnotic effects of Glass’s Mad Rush, the contrasting moods of Schumann’s Arabesque, Satie’s mysterious Gnosienne No,3, and finally Schumann’s dramatic and challenging Kreisleriana. The work's title was inspired by the writer E.T.A. Hoffmann’s fictional character Johannes Kreisler, a musician who, like Schumann himself, was subject to pathological mood swings. Be entranced by the elegance, grace, and originality of this highly distinctive artist!
