Embarking on the second of his three seasons as the New York Philharmonic’s first Artist-in-Association – an appointment that involves performances in both subscription concerts and chamber performances, and acting as ambassador for the orchestra —Inon Barnatan launches the season on Friday, October 9 in Ann Arbor playing Beethoven’s Piano concerto No. 1 with the orchestra and its Music Director Alan Gilbert. Magnus Lindberg’s Vivo and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 complete the program. On the same day, Inon presents a masterclass for University of Michigan students, presented under the auspices of a new residency partnership between the New York Philharmonic and the University of Michigan’s University Musical Society.

Back in New York’s David Geffen Hall, Inon joins the New York Philharmonic for Mozart’s Concerto No. 23 in A Major, K. 488 under Jaap van Zweden. This program is complemented by Britten’s Sinfonia da Requiem and Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.
