Portland Ovations Presents Inon Barnatan

Saturday, October 13 at 2:00 pm
Hannaford Hall, Portland

Maine Public is the media sponsor of Portland Ovations Classical Series including a performance by celebrated pianist Inon Barnatan, live at Hannaford Hall on the University of Southern Maine Portland campus, on Saturday afternoon, October 13.

"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."
