celebrating Bernard Greenhouse
Join us June 5 at 3pm when Kate Dillingham and Jory Vinikour celebrate the 2nd printing of the edition Bernard Greenhouse and Kate Dillingham co-edited for G. Schirmer, Inc. and the release of their new CD recording with a performance of Three Sonatas for Violoncello and Harpsichord, BWV 1027-1029 by J.S. Bach. Colleagues from G. Schirmer, Inc will be on hand to present a short talk about the Greenhouse~Dillingham edition and the legacy passed from Casals to Greenhouse to Dillingham.
Kate Dillingham enjoys a diverse career as a soloist, collaborative artist and is an avid proponent of the music of living composers. Following her New York debut, which featured world premieres of works by Augusta Read Thomas and Pulitzer Prize-winner Jennifer Higdon, the press deemed her “an excellent cellist; dignified, intelligent, and compelling. An adventurous, dedicated champion of contemporary music … an extraordinary performer who displayed musical insight and emotional depth…”
She has performed as a soloist with The St. Petersburg Philharmonic, The Moscow Symphony Orchestra, The Salzburg Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Moscow Chamber Orchestra. She has appeared at Carnegie Hall, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lincoln Center, Bargemusic and Symphony Space in New York City. Recent highlights include concerts at the Tsereteli Gallery in Moscow, Russia, Weill Recital Hall and The Dimenna Center in New York City.
Ms. Dillingham was a student of Bernard Greenhouse at the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University and Maria Tchaikovskaya at the Moscow Conservatory. A long association with Mr. Greenhouse led to collaboration on an edition of the Sonatas for Violoncello and Keyboard BWV 1027-1029 by J.S. Bach, published by G. Schirmer Inc., which she presented in a combined concert and lecture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Kate’s enthusiasm for broadening the range and repertoire of the cello has led her to commission, perform, and record music written by composers of the 21st century. Ms. Dillingham has recorded four albums of varied repertoire: Haydn Cello Concertos with the Moscow Chamber Orchestra, Lutoslawki and Herbert Concertos with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, music of Debussy, Honegger and Fauré and CROSSSINGS; New Music For Cello all of which are available at itunes, amazon.com.

First Prizes in the International Harpsichord Competitions of Warsaw (1993) and the Prague Spring Festival (1994) brought him to the public’s attention, and he has since appeared in festivals and concert series, and as soloist with major orchestras, throughout much of the world.He has appeared as conductor/harpsichordist with the Juilliard415 Baroque orchestra at Carnegie Hall, as well as with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Korea Chamber Orchestra, etc. He has collaborated with many of the most prominent singers of today, notably Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, Rolando Villazon. His solo recordings have been widely praised in the international press. His recording of the complete works of Jean-Philippe Rameau (Sono Luminus, 2012) was nominated for a Grammy in the field of Best Classical Solo Intrumental Recording.
