Performance Information

“An astonishing richness of opulence, brilliance, muted hues, and quiet clarity” – Washington Post

Taking Erik Satie’s atmospheric and mysterious compositional form—the “Gnossienne”—as inspiration and point of departure, the ever-inventive pianist Simone Dinnerstein presents a centuries-spanning program of works in which (in her own words) “each composition evokes an act of worship from a service that no one has ever attended.”

Dinnerstein’s engagement with Washington Performing Arts includes a multi-day residency in the D.C. Public Schools under the auspices of our D.C. Keys education program.

This performance is made possible in part through the generous support of The Honorable Mary V. Mochary and Dr. Philip E. Wine
