On Simone Dinnerstein's new album Circles, the pianist debuts an original concerto from Philip Glass.

The minimalist, yet romantic piece, which Glass composed specifically for Dinnerstein, sprung from a breakfast meeting in the prolific composer's garden. She says the new work uses repetition to mirror human values in music. 

"It's something that we need... to revisit experiences," she says. "I just feel like that's something where the music is reflecting a need that we have as people."

Jazz and classical sensibilites collide on pianist Robert Prester's new album, Rapsodya

The album tackles classical solo works from master composers as well as his first ever take on composing in the sonata form. Prester says that an accidental move to the New York City neighborhood of Queens led to a creative flood that helped shape his new work. 

"Queens just felt like this big, wide-open craziness," he says. "It was a great period for me."
