In her 2011 Duke Performances collaboration with Tift Merritt, the Brooklyn-based pianist Simone Dinnerstein caught Americana partisans off guard with her marvelous solo rendition of a suite by Bach — a composer whose rigorously precise music she plays with accessible clarity.... After rising to prominence via a self-financed recording of the Goldberg Variations, she now records for the eminent Sony Classical label. This year, Dinnerstein steps into the solo spotlight for a full course of piano music, offering two delightful Bach Partitas alongside poetically tender meditations by Brahms and Schubert.
$30, Duke students $5.
