Simone Dinnerstein recently returned from Berlin where she recorded her first album for Sony Classical. In Aspen, she will perform three pieces from the album – J.S. Bach’s Keyboard Concerto in D minor, BWV 1052 and Keyboard Concerto in F minor, BWV 1056 and Bach’s English Suite No. 3 in G minor, BWV 808. The recording features Ms. Dinnerstein as piano soloist with Kammerorchester der Staatskapelle Berlin (performing without a conductor) and also includes transcriptions of two Bach Chorale Preludes – Ferruccio Busoni’s transcription of “Ich ruf' zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ,” and Myra Hess’s transcription of “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring,” BWV 147. The CD will be released worldwide in January 2011, and will be engineered by Grammy-winning producer Adam Abeshouse.
