A modern look.

She takes a fairly liberal approach to the music, not that that's a bad thing, it's just different. Check it out if you're open, if you're a stuffy conservatory elitist, you probably have "better" already.

More excellent work from Dinnerstein

I will admit. I am a typical Baroque music snob and prefer authentic instruments, but while Bach did not have a piano at his disposal to create these works, had he been given a chance, I believe he would have been pleasantly surprised by the extra dimensions the modern piano can afford his music over a harpsichord. Dinnerstein's breakout Goldberg Variations recording was a favorite for me - and set her world in motion as a serious classical pianist. This disc is just as bright with a careful review of keyboard literature that represent Bach as teacher, performer, composer and musician. Of course, I have recordings of most of this literature performed on harpsichord, but these recordings present us with a different perspective to Bach with a spry and not overly cerebral interpretation of his works. I am eager to hear Dinnerstein evolve into other literature, such as the complicated works of Beethoven or Schumann, brilliantly interpreted by Richard Goode, or the cheerful and technically astounding works of Mozart (great recordings by Uchida). As a young pianist, however, she is making her name as a solid interpreter of Bach. I recommend a download.


Dinnerstein's signature beautiful tone is what carries this album, but she shows little insight into the music of Bach. It's an OK Bach album but the true Bach lovers probablly aready have better selections of these works in their library. Shallow playing over deep music. -Bz
