Acclaimed pianist Simone Dinnerstein will perform classical selections by Bach that are special for the evening.  Dinnerstein’s career took off in 2007 following the remarkable success of her recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, which earned the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Classical Chart in its first week on and was chosen as one of the Best CDs of the year by The New York Times and The New Yorker, among many others.  Known for her highly individual and emotive performances, Simone has been called “the pianist’s pianist of Generation X” by The New Yorker.

The Peace Piano is a 1903 Steinway Hamburg D concert grand that miraculously survived World War II in the town of Hull, England. In the war, the building where the piano was housed was completely destroyed, but the piano remained.  After WWII, it was used in a series of concerts by legendary artists including Benno Moiseiwitsch, Gina Bachauer and Benjamin Britten in an effort to uplift the morale of the people.  The instrument was restored in 2002 by Klavierhaus, a piano restoration company and store in New York and was played at the re-opening of the Winter Garden at The World Financial Center, once again to be showcased for the purpose of healing and rebirth.  The use of the piano for this event is made possible with the generous donation of the owners of Klavierhaus New York, Sujatri and Gabor Reisinger.
