Format: Audio CD
Noted Brooklyn, NY native and Juilliard-trained classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein demonstrates again why she should be viewed as one of the premier contemporary interpreters of J. S. Bach in her recording of the Bach Inventions & Sinfonias BWV 772-801. Though purists may be tempted to ignore this recording, I would urge them to reconsider, not least because she emphasizes the cantabile, danceable, aspects of Bach's keyboard music through her unique, Romantic, interpretations of familiar works like Invention No. 8 in F Major, BWV 779 or Invention No. 12 in A Major, BWV 783 or Sinfonia no. 6 in E Major, BWV 792. I find much to commend in her playing, even if I tend to be more a fan of period instrument-informed performances of the kind emphasized by Andras Schiff in his critically acclaimed recording of the Goldberg Variations. (I would rank hers, Murray Perahia and Schiff's as the three best modern recordings of the Goldberg Variations, with hers especially noteworthy given the unusual circumstances that led to its recording and subsequent release.) Anyone who reads the accompanying liner notes should realize that she has thought long and hard about these pieces, noting how they formed an essential part of her musical education as a young pianist growing up in Brooklyn in the 1970s and 1980s; if for no other reason than these, her latest recording of Bach keyboard works should be due ample serious consideration by potential purchasers as well as fellow reviewers.

Simone Dinnerstein is definitely one of the foremost classical pianists of our time, having yielded a rich recorded musical legacy that includes recordings of the Beethoven cello sonatas with her Juilliard classmate and friend, cellist Zuill Bailey, as well as her celebrated Goldberg Variations album.

An amazing feat March 13 2014
By Stephen J. Millner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Everyone who has had piano lessons, or lived with someone who had piano lessons, knows the Bach Inventions. They can be tedious. They can be painful. Over and over. Miraculously, Simone Dinnerstein plays them as Bach imagined them before he even wrote them. Each is a shining gem. I don't know how they recorded the piano so beautifully, either. The sound is perfect -- no hammers or levers here, just pure tones. This CD must be heard to be believed. Once you hear it, you will buy it.

This is a great bach recording June 20 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been listening to Bach for years and somehow I just found Simone Dinnerstein. This is a great, sophisticated recording; she has total command of the music and imparts its flow and character. She has skill in the range of Murray Peraiha and Andras Schiff and has some of the sound and feel of Gould. It is a fair comparison. I will listen to it along with their renditions. What a fantastic surprise.

Exquisite Aug. 2 2014
By G. Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Bach had a genius for integrating simplicity and complexity, and, on this CD, Simone Dinnerstein, a rising star pianist, conveys that exquisitely. This is sublime music making that can completely absorb you and even move you to tears. Both the piano used and the piano technician, as well as the recording engineer, are credited, and rightly so, for the piano sound is pristine. Warning: As of August, 2014, Amazon was selling an “imported” version of the CD for more than twice the $13 price of the non-imported version.

sublime March 17 2014
By Niklas P. Andersson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'm not an ardent classical music fan per se, but I love piano music--especially solo piano. I listen to a lot of Jarrett, Mehldau, Olafur Arnolds, and my latest favorite Nils Frahm. I'm also a fan of the piano soundtrack that explores a theme and approaches that theme from different angles like the Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close soundtrack and works by Ludovico Eindaudi. Like those soundtracks these melodies often repeat phrases and expressions, leaving a comprehensive whole that is satisfying. The sound of the piano is soothing and Dinnerstein's interpretation is delicate and mysterious. I stream it everywhere....
