Inon Barnatan, Piano

Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan is known for his compelling and insightful musicianship and elegant virtuosity, and as "a true poet of the keyboard, refined, searching [and] unfailingly communicative" (London's Evening Standard). He has performed extensively with the world's important orchestras, including those of Cleveland, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco, and he has worked with distinguished conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel, Michael Tilson Thomas, Matthias Pintscher, and Pinchas Zukerman. Awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2009, he enters his third and final season in 2016-17 as the New York Philharmonic's first Artist in Association, a position that continues to spotlight Barnaton's concerto and chamber collaborations with the orchestra, including his debut at the Mostly Mozart Festival. Barnatan's recordings are critically acclaimed, and his album Darknesse Visible was named one of the "Best of 2012" by the New York Times. His 2015 CD Rachmaninov & Chopin: Cello Sonatas on Decca Classics with Alisa Weilerstein earned rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic.
