ABOUT INON BARNATAN

Celebrated for the unique approach, probing intellect, and consummate artistry he brings to a broad range of repertoire, Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan currently serves as the first Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic. This unprecedented three-season appointment sees him appear as soloist in subscription concerts, take part in regular chamber performances, and act as ambassador for the orchestra.

"a complete artist: a wonderful pianist, a probing intellect, passionately committed, and a capable contemporary-music pianist as well.” 

Alan Gilbert, Music Director, New York Philharmonic

In 2015-16, Barnatan embarks on his second season with the Philharmonic, playing Mozart with Jaap van Zweden, Beethoven under Music Director Alan Gilbert, and Saint-Saëns on New Year’s Eve. Other upcoming highlights include his Disney Hall debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel, and a U.S. tour with the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas, featuring dates at the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall.

Awarded the Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2009, Barnatan has performed extensively with many of the world’s foremost orchestras, including those of Cleveland, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco; the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields; Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin; Orchestre de la Suisse Romande; and the Jerusalem and Shanghai Symphony Orchestras. He has worked with such distinguished conductors as Roberto Abbado, James Gaffigan, Matthias Pintscher, David Robertson, Edo De Waart, and Pinchas Zukerman. Passionate about contemporary music, last season the pianist premiered new pieces composed for him by Pintscher and Sebastian Currier. “A born Schubertian” (Gramophone), Barnatan’s critically acclaimed discography includes Avie and Bridge recordings of the Austrian composer’s solo piano works, as well as Darknesse Visible, which scored a coveted place on the New York Times’ “Best of 2012” list. His Chopin and Rachmaninoff duo sonatas album, recorded with cellist Alisa Weilerstein, will be released by Decca Classics next season.

Disney Hall Debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic

The Los Angeles Times praised Inon’s "imaginative, animated” 2014 rendition of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 22 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, elaborating to say that "He has a sharp wit to go along with his marvelously varied touch, a melting, rhetorical way of closing a phrase, pointing out every detail in the finale with impish delight that was clear to all from his expressions on the giant video screens."
