Inon Barnatan

 

One of the most admired pianists of his generation" (New York Times), Inon Barnatan is celebrated for his poetic sensibility, musical intelligence, and consummate artistry. He was a recipient of Lincoln Center's Martin E. Segal Award in 2015, recognizing "young artists of exceptional accomplishment," as well as the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2009. He recently completed his third and final season as the inaugural Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic, a position created by former Philharmonic Music Director Alan Gilbert, who calls him "the complete artist: a wonderful pianist, a probing intellect, passionately committed, and a capable contemporary-music pianist as well." Gilbert and Barnatan have since collaborated numerous times and are in the process of recording the complete cycle of Beethoven piano concertos with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, marking that orchestra's first complete recorded Beethoven concerto cycle.

The summer of 2017 saw Barnatan make his BBC Proms debut, playing Ravel's Piano Concerto in G with conductor Kazushi Ono and the BBC Symphony in Royal Albert Hall. He also played the world premiere in Aspen of a new concerto by Alan Fletcher, and opens the 2017-18 season performing the same piece with the commissioning Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl under the baton of Ken-David Masur. Later in the season he will play it again with the Atlanta Symphony under Robert Spano. Another season highlight is a New Year's Eve performance of Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto in Minneapolis with the Minnesota Orchestra led by Osmo Vänskä, followed by a tour of the Midwest with the orchestra culminating at Chicago‘s Symphony Hall. He debuts with the London and Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestras; returns to the Cincinnati Orchestra to play the notoriously difficult Barber Piano Concerto; and plays solo recitals at London's Wigmore Hall and South Bank Centre, New York's 92nd Street Y, and the Vancouver Recital Society, among others. As a chamber musician he will curate and play in a multi-concert Schubert festival for La Jolla Music Society, and tour the U.S. and Europe with his frequent recital partner, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, including concerts at Carnegie Hall and Wigmore Hall.
