PIANIST SIMONE DINNERSTEIN AND PAINTER JIM SHANTZ TO PERFORM AT TEREZIN CHAMBER MUSIC FOUNDATION GALA CELEBRATE THE LEGACY: AN EVENING OF MUSIC & PAINTING
  • 4. TO TAKE PLACE AT BOSTON’S COLONNADE HOTEL SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 BOSTON - On Monday, September 22, 2008, pianist Simone Dinnerstein will perform J. S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations to benefit the Terezin Chamber Music Foundation’s (www.terezinmusic.org) Holocaust education and chamber music commission programs. Visual artist Jim Schantz will also create an improvisational painting inspired by the Hawthorne String Quartet’s live performance of Hans Krása’s String Quartet. The gala event will take place at the Colonnade Hotel in Boston. For digital photos and more information about TCMF programs, please contact info@terezinmusic.org. “The evening will be a celebration of creativity – both in a Terezin and contemporary context,” says TCMF founding director Mark Ludwig, referring to the WWII camp where the Nazis kept the most artistic prisoners as propaganda showpieces for international visitors. “TCMF supports the emerging voices of our time in memory of those who were silenced.” Since her recital debut at Carnegie Hall in 2005, Simone Dinnerstein has continued to garner acclaim throughout the world. Her premiere 2007 CD on Telarc – a recording of Goldberg Variations – debuted at the top of the Billboard Traditional Classical Chart and made a number of critics’ “Best of 2007” lists. Known for what The New York Times calls “an utterly distinctive voice,” Dinnerstein received the Classical Recording Foundation award in 2006 and 2007. Working in the tradition of the Hudson River School of painting, Jim Schantz is a Berkshire resident whose works have been displayed and featured in exhibition in major museums and private collections around the world, including the Berkshire Museum, the Springfield Museum of Fine Arts, the Harrison Gallery in Williamstown and Pucker Gallery in Boston. Since its inception in 1986, the Hawthorne String Quartet (which consists of Boston Symphony Orchestra members violinists Ronan Lefkowitz and Si-Jing Huang, violist Mark Ludwig, and cellist Sato Knudsen) has performed all over the world, including appearances at such major festivals as Tanglewood, Ravinia and Aspen. Appointed Quartet-In-Residence at Boston College in 1998, HSQ has distinguished itself internationally by championing the works of composers who perished in the Holocaust. In addition to working with Schantz, HSW has also collaborated with Christopher Hogwood, Ned Rorem, Andre Previn, Sir Simon Rattle, Yo-Yo Ma, Joshua Bell, Lynn Harrell, Marta Argerich and the Philobolus Dance Company. To view an improvisational performance by Schantz and the HSQ, go to http://bcm.bc.edu/issues/spring_2007/linden_lane/from-life.html, then click on Hawthorne String Quartet located on left margin under "Videos."
