Inon Barnatan

Pianist Inon Barnatan joins us at Valley Public Radio to talk about his new CD of works by Franz Schubert, and about his upcoming performance in Fresno, in the debut concert of the Fresno Philharmonic's 60th anniversary season. Barnatan will perform Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 2, a rarely heard work by the Russian master. In this interview we discuss Barnatan's career, his beginnings in classical music as a young child in Israel, his approach to the recording studio, and much more. Fresno Philharmonic Executive Director Stephen Wilson also joins us to talk about the orchestra's 60th anniversary and recent honor for conductor Theodore Kuchar, who was recently honored with a Latin GRAMMY award nomination.
