GRAMMY®-nominated pianist Simone Dinnerstein, described by The Philadelphia Inquirer as “an intrepid artistic personality,” is presented as a guest soloist in two concerts with The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, performing W.A. Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major. Conducted by Music Director Dirk Brossé, the concert program will also include George Walker’s Lyric for Strings, and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 in C major.

As a musician who embraces collaboration and inclusiveness with her artistry and performances, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 in A Major holds particular significance for Dinnerstein. Not only is the piece included on her 2017 album, Mozart in Havana, but the concerto served as a point of artistic connection between Dinnerstein and the Havana Lyceum Orchestra, with which she performed the piece while visiting Cuba in 2015, at the invitation of her teacher and esteemed pianist, Solomon Mikowsky. Gramophone describes Dinnerstein’s approach to piece, which she also recorded with the Havana Lyceum Orchestra for her album, as having a “wide yet subtle palette of tonal shadings and articulations,” while also applauding her “crisp fingerwork and strategic left-hand accents” in the concerto’s finale.
