Dinnerstein: Tanowitz Dance Collaboration


Simone Dinnerstein
Pam Tanowitz

Duke Performances, Peak Performances, Summer Stages at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, and Opening Nights Performing Arts have commissioned New Work for Goldberg Variations, a new collaboration from Simone Dinnerstein and choreographer Pam Tanowitz. New Work for Goldberg Variations, an evening-long piece for piano and seven dancers, premiered in October 2017 at Duke Performances to great critical acclaim.


“How brilliant of [Dinnerstein], despite the great fame of her score, to hold back on the fireworks and choose what she actually needed.” – Joan Acocella, The New Yorker


“Ms. Dinnerstein plays in a free and unorthodox interpretation that by itself is well worth the price of admission.” – New York Times on New Work for Goldberg Variations


"The humble-sounding title accurately announces a rare achievement." – New York Times on New Work for Goldberg Variations

Simone Dinnerstein

Douglas J. Cuomo has composed for the concert, operatic and theatrical stage, a well as for television and film. His expressive musical language, with its arresting juxtapositions of sound and style, is a natural outgrowth of his wide-ranging background and training. A professional guitarist while still in his teens, he alternated years of college – studying jazz, world music and ethnomusicology at Wesleyan University in Connecticut and University of Miami– with years on the road playing in jazz, pop and funk bands.
