Inon Barnatan joins Lisbon’s Gulbenkian Orchestra for performances of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 on December 3 and 4 under Principal Guest Conductor Susanna Mälkki. He is replacing Yefim Bronfman, who unfortunately had to withdraw due to illness. The program on both evenings also includes Pierre Boulez’s Rituel, which was written in memory of the composer Bruno Maderna.

Tickets and more information can be found here for the concert on Thursday, December 3 and here for the concert on Friday, December 4, both of which take place at the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian in Lisbon.
