Solo Recitals in Oregon, Indiana, and New Orleans
Inon Barnatan has long been known as a particularly thoughtful programmer, choosing pieces that both stand alone and connect to one another in a variety of ways. Thus, for recitals in Oregon on November 13, Indiana on November 17, and New Orleans on November 20, he presents a program that includes Brahms’s arrangement for left hand of German Baroque master J.S. Bach’s Chaconne in D; a set of Variations by Brahms on a theme composed by Bach’s great contemporary Handel; and Ligeti’s Musica ricercata, one of the movements of which is an homage to Italian Baroque master Frescobaldi.
As the New York Times reported following Inon's recent Mostly Mozart debut, which included Bach, Handel, Ligeti, and much more: “Barnatan showed why he is one of the most admired pianists of his generation. … He played everything brilliantly.”

Recitals at Mostly Mozart and Aspen
On August 13, Inon presents a solo recital that marks his festival debut at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart, highlighting repertoire inspired by the kind of dance suite popular in the Baroque with movements including a chaconne, allemande, courante, fuga, and others. What distinguishes the concert-length suite Barnatan assembled is that each movement is by a different composer, and the composers themselves span periods from the Baroque to the 21st century. Also featured on the program is the New York premiere of Variations For Blanca by Thomas Adès, who himself has a penchant for musical dialogue with past eras: his deconstruction of a Dowland song serves as the title track on Barnatan’s album Darknesse Visible, which earned the pianist a coveted spot on the “Best of 2012” list in the New York Times. The concert can be streamed live here on lincolncenter.org beginning at 10pm ET.
Five days after his Mostly Mozart debut, Barnatan performs an almost entirely different solo recital at the Aspen Music Festival. This summer’s program includes Ravel’s notoriously difficult Gaspard de la nuit, also recorded on Darknesse Visible, as well as the U.S. premiere of Grawemeyer Award-winning composer Sebastian Currier’s Glow. Currier’s piece was another Barnatan commission, and the pianist gave the world premiere in London’s Wigmore Hall a year ago.
Later in the month, Inon returns to the Mostly Mozart Festival to join Garrick Ohlsson August 24-27 for Mozart’s Sonata in D for Two Pianos, K. 448 in David Geffen Hall, part of a program that also includes performances by the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra and Mark Morris Dance Group.
Live Recording of Messiaen’s Des canyons aux étoiles… Now Available
Last summer, Inon joined an all-star orchestra of 44 musicians at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival in an account of Olivier Messiaen’s monumental and otherworldly twelve-movement, 90-minute orchestral masterpiece, Des canyons aux étoiles… (From the Canyons to the Stars…), conducted by festival Artist-in-Residence Alan Gilbert. Marking a major milestone in the festival’s history, the performance – featuring the largest ensemble ever gathered there for a single work – was recorded live and is now available from Entertainment One Music. In a work requiring staggering virtuosity from all players, Inon plays the notoriously challenging piano part, including the fourth and ninth movements (Le cossyphe d’Heuglin “The white-browed robin-chat” and Le moqueur polyglotte “The mockingbird”), both of which are scored for solo piano.
Commissioned by art patron Alice Tully for the U.S. bicentennial and premiered at Lincoln Center in 1974, Canyons celebrates the awe-inspiring beauty of the great canyons of southwest Utah, which include Cedar Breaks, Bryce Canyon, and Zion National Park. Encompassing a characteristically Messiaenic mix of birdsong, modernist experimentalism, and religious mysticism, the work expresses the composer’s faith in the power of nature to communicate the very essence of God.
Inon’s frequent collaborations with Alan Gilbert — who launches his eighth and final season as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic next month — include his three-year residency as the New York Philharmonic’s inaugural Artist-in-Association. Inon and Alan look forward to reuniting in the coming season to continue recording Beethoven’s Five Piano Concertos with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields and to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Leipzig Gewandhausorchester.

The Boston Globe: Barnatan makes auspicious recital debut at Longy
"It was an amazing display of rhythmic, textural, and dynamic control...The technical facility and imaginative sensibility for which Barnatan has been widely heralded were apparent throughout the captivating recital"
"Barnatan gave a decisive, exacting take on the concerto's energetic, virtuosic moments and also displayed confidence and a feel for the work as he sunk comfortably into the composer's characteristic wistful, melodic mode. He created a mood that was bittersweet and nostalgic but not maudlin. The playing was smooth and dexterous with piquant accents at the extremes of the instrument and an appealingly focused, tapered tone.” (Ronni Reich)

Chicago Tribune – Inon Barnatan, poet, intellectual virtuoso
"Virtuosity was there throughout, which is to say, from the opening Bach E-minor Toccata through the lone encore, Felix Mendelssohn's Andante and Rondo capriccioso. Its most forceful display was in Barber's thunderously difficult Sonata, and the most beguiling came in Franz Schubert's late Sonata in A major, which after intermission gave a change of pace...What made the demonstrations of intellect and virtuosity special was Barnatan's variety of touch that conveyed both the piety and perfume of Franck's "Prelude, Choral et Fugue" in addition to the ache at the heart of the essentially sunny Schubert."
