Glass: Mad Rush for Solo Piano
Beethoven: Cello Sonata No. 5 in D major, Op. 102, No. 2

Marking Ludwig van Beethoven’s upcoming 250th birthday in 2020, this sublime concert juxtaposes this classical master with one of today’s most influential composers—Philip Glass—for a fascinating concert of “then and now.” Two virtuosos, cellist Matt Haimovitz and pianist Simone Dinnerstein, present an innovative program that showcases the two musicians as collaborators and soloists. The program will open and close with the duo performing Beethoven’s Cello Sonatas together. Known as a musical pioneer and a “ferociously talented cellist” (The New York Times), Haimovitz will perform Glass’ Partita No. 2, a work for which he performed the world premiere in 2017. Dinnerstein will perform Mad Rush, a solo by Glass which demonstrates her extraordinary depth and virtuosity as a pianist. The Washington Post praised her “personality, verve, and thoughtfulness,” and The New Yorker describes her “lean, knowing and unpretentious elegance.”
