Goldberg Variations, BWV988


Simone Dinnerstein (piano)


This recording contains some of the most beautiful, sensitive, intelligent and manifestly sincere playing you’re ever likely to hear.” – Piano magazine review

Brooklyn-born pianist Simone Dinnerstein decided to learn Bach’s Goldberg Variations as a project during her maternity. It led to her career taking off in a way she could never have expected. She performed the complete Goldberg Variations at her self-produced and critically acclaimed New York debut at Carnegie Hall in November 2005 which led to the release of this recording - her Telarc debut which she had recorded in March 2005 with GRAMMY Award winning producer Adam Abeshouse. As a result of the performance she gained an international manager, signed an exclusive record contract with Telarc, and is now touring internationally.
The piano she plays, a 1903 Hamburg Steinway model D concert grand, was originally owned by the town council of Hull, England – during WW2 the town hall was severely damaged by bombing but the piano survived, and was restored in New York City in time to be used at the re-opening of the World Trade Center’s Winter Garden.

This is, in many respects, an exceptional performance of the Goldberg Variations on the piano…this very distinguished performance merits close attention from all Bach lovers.” - Robert Matthew-Walker, International Record Review, September 2007
Simone is a beautifully balanced pianist…this interpretation is a triumphant first adventure, thrillingly told.” - Rick Jones, Classic FM Magazine, October 2007 (
Instrumental disc of the month, 5 stars)

Simone Dinnerstein finds a graceful tone for the gentler variations, and a wide palette of colour when that is required.” - Michael Church, The Independent, 17 August 2007
