October 17 brings three of today’s most compelling artists together for the world premiere of Through Your Fingers at Carnegie Hall. A new Carnegie co-commission from Grammy Award-winner Steven Mackey – “a composer who escapes easy labels” (New York Times”) – the new work was written for MacArthur Award-winning cellist Alisa Weilerstein and Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan. The two are longtime recital partners who have previously premiered new works by Joseph Hallman, and their close rapport has been characterized as “a level of musical symbiosis that transcends casual partnership” (Voix des Arts). For the upcoming Carnegie concert, they juxtapose Mackey’s new composition with Mendelssohn’s impassioned Second Cello Sonata and the sole contributions to the genre by Britten and Rachmaninoff.
