Simone Dinnerstein – Bach Goldberg Variations




I downloaded Simone Dinnerstein’s version from EMusic today to listen to. I never liked Glenn Gould’s version.

If you want to be a concert pianist when you grow up, there are certain rules. You do start playing as a young child. You don’t drop out of Juilliard. You do win competitions and get the attention of managers at a young age. You don’t end up at 30 with no management and no bookings, raising the money yourself for your first recording. And you definitely don’t make your New York recital debut with Bach’s demanding “Goldberg” Variations, which are supposed to reflect the wisdom of long experience, and Baroque style.
