Event description

About this event

The Long Story

Over the course of the pandemic shutdown, internationally-renowned pianist Simone Dinnerstein took refuge in long walks through Green-Wood. Now, she brings her searching artistry to The Angel’s Share in a one-of-a-kind performance that will see her guiding audiences across the Cemetery, pausing periodically to perform on several Yamaha pianos that will be scattered throughout the route.

Dinnerstein will perform a deeply-relevant new piece written for her by Richard Danielpour, entitled An American Mosaic. Each movement of the work commemorates a different segment of the American population that’s been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, including first responders, parents, caretakers, and those who have lost their lives to the virus. Inspired and comforted by Dinnerstein’s Bach recordings throughout the pandemic, Danielpour also composed three Bach transcriptions to accompany An American Mosaic.

The program will open with Joseph Phillips’ Never Has Been Yet, where Dinnerstein will be joined by American radio personality Robin Quivers, reciting from the Langston Hughes poem "Let America Be America Again."

The Short Story
