Classical Music
Matt Haimovitz with Simone Dinnerstein
Sunday, October 13 at 2 p.m.

Beethoven: Cello Sonata No. 4 in C major, Op. 102, No. 1
Glass: Partita No. 2 for Solo Cello
Glass: Mad Rush for Solo Piano
Beethoven: Cello Sonata No. 5 in D major, Op. 102, No. 2

Marking Ludwig van Beethoven’s upcoming 250th birthday in 2020, this sublime concert juxtaposes this classical master with one of today’s most influential composers—Philip Glass—for a fascinating concert of “then and now.” Two virtuosos, cellist Matt Haimovitz and pianist Simone Dinnerstein, present an innovative program that showcases the two musicians as collaborators and soloists. The program will open and close with the duo performing Beethoven’s Cello Sonatas together. Known as a musical pioneer and a “ferociously talented cellist” (The New York Times), Haimovitz will perform Glass' Partita No. 2, a work for which he performed the world premiere in 2017. Dinnerstein will perform Mad Rush, a solo by Glass which demonstrates her extraordinary depth and virtuosity as a pianist. The Washington Post praised her “personality, verve, and thoughtfulness,” and The New Yorker describes her “lean, knowing and unpretentious elegance.”

“In his hands, Bach’s music turns into quotidian sound, a music fully part of the now.” The New York Times
“Haimovitz can tease 1,000 shades of tone out of a single stroke of his bow as he gives each movement its own tone – from driving and aggressive to a still near-silence.” Toronto Star
“…a musician who positively thrives on challenge…” The New York Times
“Matt Haimovitz gave a stunning performance” The Scotsman
“…sensitive and virtuosic: there is great poetic intimacy…” The Strad

“These were performances I’d be willing to attend in a coal mine.” Philadelphia Inquirer

"An utterly distinctive voice in the forest of Bach interpretation, Ms. Dinnerstein brings her own pianistic expressivity to the 'Goldberg' Variations, probing each variation as if it were something completely new. She learned them herself and recorded them herself, then Telarc picked up the album and it became one of the success stories of the year." The New York Times
