Simone Dinnerstein is an inventive pianist “of strikingly original ideas and irrefutable integrity” (The Washington Post), known for projects that express her diverse musical interests. Her newest recording, An American Mosaic, features a 15-movement cycle for solo piano composed by Richard Danielpour.

Inspired by Dinnerstein’s Bach recordings, the composer created the work to give comfort to all who have struggled through these challenging times. This deeply affecting composition is accompanied by Danielpour’s Three Bach Transcriptions, written as a thank-you to the pianist. Dinnerstein, in turn, has commissioned new works from Joseph C. Phillips Jr., and will perform his 2016 piece Never Has Been Yet, with poetry by Langston Hughes.
