MacArthur Fellow cellist Alisa Weilerstein and Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient pianist Inon Barnatan join together for an evening of musical artistry featuring select Beethoven Cello Sonatas.
In performances marked by intensity, sensitivity, and a wholehearted immersion, Alisa Weilerstein has established a distinctive musical voice recognized worldwide. Milestones in her career include an invitation in 2009 by Michelle Obama to participate in a widely celebrated and high-profile classical music event at the White House, as well as a tour across Venezuela as a soloist with the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra under Gustavo Dudamel. Weilerstein’s growing and celebrated discography includes a recording of the Elgar and Elliott Carter cello concertos that was named “Recording of the Year 2013” by BBC Music.
“One of the most admired pianists of his generation” (New York Times), Inon Barnatan is celebrated for his poetic sensibility, musical intelligence and consummate artistry. A sought-after chamber musician, Barnatan is the recipient of both a prestigious 2009 Avery Fisher Career Grant and Lincoln Center’s 2015 Martin E. Segal Award. He was also a member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s distinguished Chamber Music Society Two program from 2006 to 2009.
