In 2007, Dinnerstein rocked the music world with her recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Now she pairs her nuanced interpretation with Tanowitz’s intricate, unpredictable movement, wittily quoting classical and popular dance forms. Under a shifting palette of lighting ranging from pinpoint spots to pastel washes, Dinnerstein holds forth at a concert grand at center stage, while around her—as if conjured by the music—dancers in solo and in small groups offer an effervescent visual realization of the emotion under Bach’s restrained exterior.
