Simone Dinnerstein, piano

A Far Cry

Grammy Award nominated self-conducted chamber orchestra, A Far Cry, is joined by pianist Simone Dinnerstein to perform the Canadian premiere of Piano Concerto No. 3, a bold new work for piano and strings by celebrated composer Philip Glass. The work, commissioned for the composer’s 80th birthday, is paired with pieces by J.S. Bach and Glass’s Symphony No. 3. “Like a slowly-whirling centrifuge, Philip Glass’s beguiling new Piano Concerto No. 3 isolates and concentrates two aspects of the composer’s personality long in particularly intriguing tension: his romantic streak and his meditative austerity.” (Boston Globe)

Join us for a fascinating pre-concert talk at 7pm.

Program:
Philip Glass: Symphony No. 3
Johann Sebastian Bach: Keyboard Concerto in G Minor, BWV 1058
Johann Sebastian Bach: Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B Minor, BWV 1067
Philip Glass: Piano Concerto No. 3 (Canadian premiere)
