Simone Dinnerstein, piano

Mozart: Quintet for winds and piano

Paquito D’Rivera: Aires Tropicales  

The FSO and JCCNV collaborate to create a new chamber music series featuring renowned artists in an intimate concert setting.  Pianist Simone Dinnerstein and the Havana Lyceum Orchestra woodwind quintet perform works that inspired their new friendship and introduce audiences to Cuba’s flourishing musical youth. 

Dinnerstein conceived of this project in 2015 when she first performed with the Havana Lyceum Orchestra – a collection of conservatory students, recent graduates and their teachers. “When I played with them, I was astonished by their commitment to listening and to rehearsal,” Dinnerstein comments, “and by their desire to explore music which can too often be worn away by familiarity, as well as by their beautiful sound - a sound they made despite the fact that even the simplest supplies, like strings and reeds, have been hard to come by in Cuba.”

This performance is co-presented with the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia
