CD of the Week | Schubert: Inon Barnatan


Pianist, Inon Barnatan is rapidly gaining international recognition for his poetic and passionate music-making, artfully exhibited on CPR's featured CD of the Week, Schubert: Inon Barnatan.  Born in Tel Aviv in 1979, Barnatan started playing piano at the age of three and made his orchestral debut at eleven.  Since moving to the United States in 2006, he has quickly made his mark in debuts with the Cleveland, San Francisco and Houston Symphony Orchestras, performing at New York’s Carnegie Hall, 92nd Street Y, Metropolitan Museum and Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, touring throughout the United States and appearing at the festivals of Aspen, Vail, Music@Menlo, Santa Fe and Spoleto USA.  Barnatan plays Schubert (and others) August 10 & 17 at the Aspen Music Festival and at Salida-Aspen Concerts this Friday, August 12.  More here

Of Schubert: Inon Barnatan, London’s Evening Standard wrote: “The young, Israeli born pianist is a true poet of the keyboard: refined, searching, unfailingly communicative… This is musicianship of the highest caliber.”  England's Gramophone Magazine recommended the recording in its November 2006 award issue, calling Barnatan “a born Schubertian” and praising the CD’s “sensitivity, poise and focus.”
