He has frequently appeared as an orchestra soloist as well as in recitals in Mexico and the USA. He has also recorded works for viola and piano.

In 1997 Mr. Dinerchtein was a guest soloist at the Bach International Festival in Peru. His recent performance of Bartok's Viola Concerto with the IPN Symphony Orchestra in Mexico City has brought him great acclaim from both critics and audiences alike.
As a chamber musician he has performed with numerous chamber ensembles, including "Camerton" with which he has appeared in the most important halls in Mexico and has recorded various quartets by Mexican composers. In 2000 he took part in several concerts at Carnegie Hall as a Principal Violist of the New England Symphonic Ensemble.
