INON BARNATAN IS A PIANIST NOT TO BE MISSED!
Israeli native Inon Barnatan is in demand across the globe. He is the recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant. Barnatan is the very first Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic, and the newly named music director of the La Jolla Music Society Summerfest. Barnatan’s superior playing and penetrating musicianship results in regular appearances with the world’s foremost orchestras and conductors. These include Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Gustavo Dudamel, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.
The Evening Standard commends Barnatan as “A true poet of the keyboard, refined, searching [and] unfailingly communicative.”
“One of the most admired pianists of his generation” claims The New York Times.
As The Pianist magazine confirms, “Barnatan is one of the finest musicians. You don’t notice his fingerwork, you simply immerse yourself in the sound he produces…and you know that there are no technical limits to what he can do.”
Listen as Inon Barnatan plays Beethoven’s Sonata in C Major.
