Inon punctuates his 2018-19 season with key performances of monumental works from the Classical repertoire.

In October he joins frequent collaborator Alan Gilbert at the conductor’s new post in Hamburg with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra for Beethoven’s Fourth Concerto. He then makes his way to the Princeton Symphony to play all five Beethoven concertos under the baton of Marcelo Lehninger, and in November and December he plays Beethoven’s Third Concerto with the Colorado Symphony led by Hans Graf. Three Mozart concertos are also on the bill this season: No. 22 with the Houston Symphony and David Danzmayr, No. 12 in New York’s Alice Tully Hall with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and No. 20 with Northern Ireland’s Ulster Orchestra under Rafael Payare.

Chamber performances this season include two concerts of Shostakovich with the St. Lawrence Quartet, one in Carnegie Hall; Brahms with the Dover Quartet; and an all-Bach program on a U.S. tour with the Calidore Quartet. The pianist also tours the U.S. and Europe with his longstanding collaborator, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, joined by violinist Sergey Khachatryan and percussionist Colin Currie for a program of Beethoven, Shostakovich, and Schoenberg.

Finally, Barnatan gives a number of high-profile solo performances this season, making his International Piano Series debut with a recital of Ravel and Mussorgsky at London’s Southbank Centre, and performing at the Seattle Symphony’s Benaroya Hall; in Boston’s Celebrity Series; at the Bienen School of Music in Evanston, Illinois; and in Alabama, Virginia, and Portland, Maine.
