Pam Tanowitz Dance | Simone Dinnerstein: New Work for Goldberg Variations
Williams Center for the Arts
317 Hamilton St. Easton, PA18042 USA
In New Work for Goldberg Variations, pianist Simone Dinnerstein brings her nuanced understanding of J.S. Bach’s ambitious keyboard series together with rule-breaking choreographer Pam Tanowitz’s witty and unflinchingly post-modern abstractions of classical and popular dance forms. Deconstructing formal and traditional movement vocabularies, New Work for Goldberg Variations converses with Bach’s iconic score in a delightful interplay of rhythm, style, and idiosyncrasy, demonstrating the rich emotional world lying beneath the poised surface of the Goldbergs’ musical architecture. Dinnerstein, whose chart-topping recording of the Bach is the definitive version of her generation, performs the demanding score live.
