“One of the most admired pianists of his generation” (The New York Times), Israeli native Inon Barnatan is in demand across the globe. Recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Barnatan is the very first Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic, and the newly named music director of the La Jolla Music Society Summerfest. Barnatan’s superior playing and penetrating musicianship results in regular appearances with the world’s foremost orchestras and conductors, including Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Gustavo Dudamel, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. As The Pianist magazine confirms, “Barnatan is 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.”
In a collaboration with Portland Ovations, this master class presents USM piano majors performing for critical feedback from Inon Barnatan, guest artist with Portland Ovations.
Master classes are a valuable tool for musicians of any instrument, and for dedicated listeners of music, for insight into the intricacies of making music. This master class will be held in Corthell Concert Hall, free and open to the public.
