Playing the piano has been a good choice for Simone Dinnerstein; from her self-promoted recording of the Goldberg Variations to her chart-topping new album on SONY Classical called BACH: A Strange Beauty, Ms. Dinnerstein is now touring the globe. Saturday night, April 9th, she's in town for a recital with Washington Performing Arts Society at the historic Sixth and I Street Synogogue in downtown DC. Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton spoke with Ms. Dinnerstein about her new album, and about her life as a performer, and instigator of an outreach concert series called "Neighborhood Classics."
