“Wide Awake Schubert” Concert – Inon Barnatan -10th September

 

Wide Awake Schubert Final Concert

Tel Aviv-born Inon Barnatan is one of the most exciting young pianists in the world today. He has already made his reputation in the US, where he has played the Aspen Festival, Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl and he was recently named the first-ever “Artist in Association” (a three-year position) with the New York Philharmonic. In the UK his fast-growing reputation has seen him a repeat visitor to Wigmore Hall. His recordings, for Avie, have been widely praised and one – Darknesse Visible – was selected as one of the recordings of the year by the New York Times. He is as the Evening Standard has written, “a true poet of the keyboard”. The Pianist magazine wrote, “One of the finest musicians…You don’t notice his fingerwork, you simply immerse yourself in the sound he produces…and you know that there are no technical limits to what he can do.”

Famous for his Schubert interpretations, here he will play Schubert’s last two sonatas, pivoting those two great masterpieces around a new work written for him by the Israeli composer Avner Dorman (perhaps the most in-demand of Israel’s composers) – the intriguingly named, “Nocturne Insomniaque”
