Chopin Society presents pianist Inon Barnatan

Starts 3:00 PM
Sunday Mar 16, 2014
Mairs Concert Hall, Music Building
Janet Wallace Fine Arts Center

Born in Tel Aviv in 1979, Inon Barnatan studied in Israel with Professor Victor Derevianko and in 1997 moved to London, where he worked with Maria Curcio and Christopher Elton at the Royal Academy. Leon Fleisher has also been an influential teacher and mentor. Barnatan’s move to New York in 2006 was followed by several notable prizes – the 2008 Andrew Wolf Memorial Award, given every two years to an exceptional chamber music pianist and, in 2009 an Avery Fisher Career Grant. His recordings include a 2006 disc of Schubert (Bridge), another of works for piano and violin by Beethoven and Schubert with violinist Liza Ferschtman (Challenge Classics), and Darkness Visible (Avie), an ingenious and arresting collection of thematically-related works by Ravel, Debussy, Thomas Adés, and Ronald Stevenson which the New York Times named one of the top classical recordings of 2012. An avid collaborative musician as well as recitalist, Barnatan earned special praise in the Twin Cities for his Schubert Club appearance last season with cellist Alisa Weilerstein.
