KENOSHA — New York-based classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein, whose recording of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” gained her a loyal international following, will give a free performance at Carthage College on Feb. 22 as part of the Chamber Music Series.
The concert at 7:30 p.m. will be held in A.F. Siebert Chapel on the Carthage campus, 2001 Alford Park Drive. The event is open to the public, but tickets are required for guests of all ages.
Released in 2007, Dinnerstein’s self-financed “Goldberg Variations” album rose to No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard classical chart in its first week of sales. Since then, four of her solo albums also have topped the charts.
A searching and inventive artist motivated to find the musical core of every work she approaches, Dinnerstein has performed in venues such as the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Sydney Opera House and London’s Wigmore Hall. She plays with a thoughtfulness that invites audiences to experience each piece as if it is brand new.
