Back in 2014, Simone Dinnerstein and Philip Glass met for breakfast. There in his garden they found a shared interest in Johann Sebastian Bach's music. The end result was a commission for a concerto for piano and strings, to be paired with one of Bach's own. Dinnerstein says, "There are almost no concertos written for piano and strings since Bach's time. The pairing of the Bach concerto with Philip's own composition creates myriad strands of connectivity, enabling the listener to create bridges between the old and the new."

WBAA's John Clare spoke to Simone about her latest release, Circles, that has Glass and Bach Concerti.

We’ll hear from two amazing sisters, Katia and Marielle Labeque on today’s What’s New.
