This week, Inon Barnatan makes his debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra — under conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada, the orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor — with two performances of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5. They will perform on 27 October at the Royal Festival Hall, and on 28 October at the Brighton Dome.
These concerts follow on from Inon’s recent BBC Proms debut with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Inon’s performance of Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major was praised as a “thrilling meeting of pianistic and orchestral virtuosity” by Classical Source (August 2017).

The following weekend, Inon returns to London for a duo recital at the Wigmore Hall with his longtime collaborator, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, which will see them perform works by Beethoven, Brahms and Stravinsky, while also giving the UK premiere of Steven Mackey’s Through Your Fingers.
Future highlights for Inon include his debut with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra with Alexander Shelley in March, a solo recital at Toppan Hall, Tokyo, in June, and returns to the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Minnesota Orchestra.
