“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 inaugurates his tenure as Music Director of California’s La Jolla Music Society Summerfest in July 2019. The coming season brings the release of a two-volume set of Beethoven’s complete piano concertos, which he recorded for Pentatone with Alan Gilbert and London’s Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.
Highlights of the 2019/20 season include debuts with Orquesta Sinfonica de Tenerife, Tiroler Landestheater und Orchester, Stuttgarter Philharmoniker, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Orquestra Sinfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya, Dresdner Philharmonie and Tokyo Symphony Orchestra. He will also be performing extensively throughout the United States, with orchestras such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, Grand Rapids Symphony, Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and San Diego Symphony.
Inon also makes his solo recital debut at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, returns to Alice Tully Hall with Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and reunites with his frequent recital partner, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, for tours on both sides of the Atlantic. The first takes them to Wigmore Hall (London), Royal Concertgebouw (Amsterdam) and La Verdi Auditorium (Milan), while the second sees them celebrate Beethoven’s 250th anniversary with performances of his complete cello sonatas in San Francisco and other U.S. cities.
Born in Tel Aviv in 1979, Inon went on to study at London’s Royal Academy of Music. He is a recipient of both the Avery Fisher Career Grant and Lincoln Center’s Martin E. Segal Award, and currently resides in New York.
