Simone Dinnerstein is a critically acclaimed pianist who gained an international following due to the remarkable success of her 2007 recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. She has since been a regular presence on the Billboard Classical Chart’s list of best-selling artists through the release of a further five solo albums. Her next album, Mozart in Havana, recorded in Cuba with the Orquesta Sinfónica del ISA, will be released in 2017. Dinnerstein’s concert schedule has taken her to prestigious venues around the world, including Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Vienna Konzerthaus, Berlin Philharmonie, Palais Garnier in Paris, and London’s Wigmore Hall. She has performed with major orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic, the Minnesota Orchestra, Baltimore and Atlanta Symphonies, MDR Leipzig, RAI National Symphony in Italy, and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. In 2009, Dinnerstein founded Neighborhood Classics, a public concert series hosted by New York City public schools, featuring musicians who donate their talents to raise funds for the schools. Simone Dinnerstein lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and son. She is managed by Andrea Troolin at Ekonomisk Mgmt and is a Sony Classical artist.
