As a thank you, we invite this diverse group of music lovers to Caramoor for a complimentary dinner including great food, wine, a live performance.

“One of the most admired pianists of his generation” (The New York Times), Inon Barnatan is celebrated for his poetic sensibility, musical intelligence, and consummate artistry. He is the recipient of both a prestigious 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant and Lincoln Center’s 2015 Martin E. Segal Award, which recognizes “young artists of exceptional accomplishment.” He was recently named the new Music Director of the La Jolla Music Society Summerfest, beginning in 2019.
A regular soloist with many of the world’s foremost orchestras and conductors, the Israeli pianist recently served three seasons as the inaugural Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic. This season he plays Beethoven with Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie Orchestra led by Alan Gilbert, Mozart with the Australian Chamber Orchestra in New York’s Alice Tully Hall, and Rachmaninov with the Pittsburgh Symphony and Israel Philharmonic, again led by Gilbert. In recent seasons he debuted at the BBC Proms, with the London and Helsinki Philharmonics, and with the Chicago, Baltimore, Fort Worth, Indianapolis, Nashville, San Diego, and Seattle Symphonies.
Also a sought-after chamber musician, this season Barnatan collaborates with the Dover, Calidore, and St. Lawrence String Quartets, performing with the latter in Carnegie Hall, and tours the U.S. and Europe with his frequent collaborator, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, along with violinist Sergey Khachatryan and percussionist Colin Currie. He makes his recital debut in the International Piano Series at London’s Southbank Centre, and plays additional recitals in the Seattle Symphony’s Benaroya Hall and Boston’s Celebrity Series, where he has been appearing in various configurations since 2008. His passion for contemporary music has seen him commission and perform many works by living composers, including premieres of pieces by Thomas Adès, Sebastian Currier, Avner Dorman, Alan Fletcher, Joseph Hallman, Alasdair Nicolson, Andrew Norman, and Matthias Pintscher.
“A born Schubertian” (Gramophone), Barnatan’s critically acclaimed discography includes Avie and Bridge recordings of the Austrian composer’s solo piano works, as well as Darknesse Visible, which scored a coveted place on The New York Times’ “Best of 2012” list. His most recent release is a live recording of Messiaen’s 90-minute masterpiece Des canyons aux étoiles (“From the Canyons to the Stars”), in which he played the formidable solo piano part at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. His 2015 Decca Classics release, Rachmaninov & Chopin: Cello Sonatas with Alisa Weilerstein, earned rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic.
