“One of the most admired pianists of his generation” (The New York Times), Inon Barnatan is celebrated for his poetic sensibility, musical intelligence, and consummate artistry. A regular performer with many of the world’s foremost orchestras and conductors and a favorite of Aspen audiences, Barnatan kicks off the 2022 Winter Music series with a tapestry of works that span the centuries.

In the first part of his Harris Hall program, Barnatan weaves together movements from larger works that share characteristics of Baroque dance styles. Together, these create a coherent suite comprising composers as varied as Bach and Handel, Ravel, and even Thomas Adès.

Closing the program is Brahms’s Variations and Fugue on a Theme by G. F. Handel in B-flat major—a work inspired, in part, by Handel’s Suite No. 5 included in Barnatan’s carefully connected selections.

Celebrate the return of live classical music to winter with this thoughtful, inspiring pianist!
