New Work for Goldberg Variations
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.
Program: New Work for Goldberg Variations (2017), set to J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations performed live by Simone Dinnerstein, choreography by Pam Tanowitz
