Dinnerstein to play

Pianist Simone Dinnerstein will perform on April 17 at Sherwood Auditorium as part of the La Jolla Music Society’s Fireman Piano Series.

She will perform Schubert’s Impromptus D 899, Op. 90; Webern’s Variations, Op. 27; and Schumann’s Kreisleriana, Op. 16; as well as Bach’s French Suite No. 5 in G Major, BWV 816, which is featured on Dinnerstein’s latest CD release, “The Berlin Concert” (Telarc).

“The Berlin Concert” was recently released worldwide and earned the No. 1 spot on the U.S. Billboard Classical Chart in its first week of sales. The Telarc disc is a live recording of Dinnerstein’s recital debut at the Kammermusiksaal of the Philharmonie in Berlin.

Professor Lucinda Carver will speak with Dinnerstein in a pre-concert talk. The concert will begin at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $25-$75. Sherwood Auditorium is inside MCASD at 700 Prospect St., La Jolla.
