About the Event:
ALISA WEILERSTEIN, cello + INON BARNATAN, piano, October 19, 2017 7:30 pm
"Yo-Yo Ma’s heiress apparent." — New York magazine
"One of the most admired pianists of his generation." — The New York Times
Two of today’s most exciting young artists are a dream team in their acclaimed recitals together. Cellist Alisa Weilerstein’s impassioned performance style, breathtaking technique, and commitment to new music helped earn her a MacArthur "genius" award at age 29. She has met her musical match in Inon Barnatan, a poet of the keyboard whose sincerity and expressiveness rival his astonishing technical abilities. When these two artists come together, says the Denver Post, "they bring urgency, intensity, and edginess … there is no playing it safe."
