7th SJE Arts International Piano Series: Inon Barnatan

Wednesday 4 March 2020​, 7.30pm

Described as ‘one of the most admired pianists of his generation’ (New York Times) American/Israeli Inon Barnatan has a career that takes him around the world. His repertoire is similarly broad, ranging from J.S. Bach to contemporary composers like Alan Fletcher, Thomas Adès and Nico Muhly.

A regular soloist with the foremost orchestras and conductors, Inon Barnatan has recently made his debut with the Leipzig Gewandhaus, Tonhalle-Orchester, Zürich, London and Helsinki Philharmonic and the Chicago, Baltimore and Seattle Symphonies, as well as completing his third and final season as the inaugural Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic. In recital he has appeared at Carnegie Hall with soprano Renée Fleming and in November 2018 made his International Piano Series debut at the Southbank Centre, London with a critically acclaimed performance of Ravel and Mussorgsky.

Tonight,  we look forward to a selection of Mendelssohn's Songs without Words, lovely short lyrical pieces in the Romantic tradition. The composer/pianist Ronald Stevenson’s Peter Grimes Fantasy follows along with two of Gershwin’s best loved works. To bring the programme to a close, Inon Barnatan performs Schubert’s transcendental Piano Sonata in B-flat major. This is the last of a trio of sonatas that Schubert wrote shortly before he died, in a period when his music had taken on a rare degree of depth and gravity.
