The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts presents pianist Inon Barnatan, recently named music director of the La Jolla’s prestigious SummerFest, who makes his Wallis debut with an adventurous program of piano suites by Bach, Handel, Ligeti and others on Saturday, June 22, 2019, 7:30 pm, at The Wallis’ Bram Goldsmith Theater. The solo recital features Handel’s Chaconne in G Major, HWV, 442, Couperin’s L’Atalante, Ravel’s Rigaudon from Le Tombeau de Couperin, Bach’s Allemande from Partita in D Major, BWV, 828, and Ades’ Blanca Variations. Barnatan also performs Ligeti’s Musica Ricercata, Nos. 11 & 10, Rameaus’s Courante from Suite in A minor, RCT. 5, Barber’s Fugue from Sonata for Piano, Op. 26, and Brahms’ Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Op. 24. Celebrated for his poetic sensibility, musical intelligence and consummate artistry, Barnatan has been hailed by the New York Times as “one of the most admired pianists of his generation.” A regular soloist with many of the world’s foremost orchestras and conductors, the Israeli pianist recently completed his third and final season as the inaugural Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic. He is the recipient of both the 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant and Lincoln Center’s Martin E. Segal Award, which recognizes “young artists of exceptional accomplishment.”
