In the 2015-16 season, Inon Barnatan embarks on his second season as Artist-in-Association with the New York Philharmonic, performing Mozart under Jaap van Zweden, Beethoven under Music Director Alan Gilbert, Saint-Saëns on New Year’s Eve, and Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Other upcoming highlights include Inon’s Walt Disney Concert Hall debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel, Beethoven with Alan Gilbert and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, and a U.S. tour of Copland’s Piano Concerto with the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas, which includes a stop at Carnegie Hall.

Inon’s Chopin and Rachmaninoff duo sonatas album, recorded with cellist and longtime exclusive recital partner Alisa Weilerstein, is due from Decca Classics October 2. Following its release is a six-country tour, in venues ranging from London’s Wigmore Hall to the Cemal Resit Rey Concert Hall in Istanbul, with further stops in Paris, Brussels, Copenhagen and Bonn. In early February Inon and Alisa reunite in the U.S. for two more appearances: in Fort Worth and at Stanford’s Bing Concert Hall.
