Receiving this advance copy of Simone Dinnerstein's new CD was something of a revelation to me. The interpretations of the Bach Partitas show an intricacy of touch and strange beauty which was present in her first CD dedicated entirely to Bach but which goes the extra mile here.

The same could be said for Dinnerstein's superb playing of the Schubert Impromptus which are perennially difficult works to pull off. However this young pianist is blssed with all sorts of intrinsic mannerism and has an unfussily direct way of doing things which brings the music to the fore in more ways than one.

The CD is another demonstration of the power of Dinnerstein's playing and it brings her to the fore of current hot shot pianists. It is another triumph for Sony Classical.
