About this Performance

Inon Barnatan is “a true poet of the keyboard: refined, searching, unfailingly communicative” (The Evening Standard). Effortlessly sailing through its melodic yet meticulous runs, Barnatan demonstrates why No. 25 ranks among Mozart’s top piano concertos. Karina Canellakis leads Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, universally praised for its thematic dominance, enhanced by shimmering harps and winds, a wistful folk-like intermezzo from the strings, and a spontaneous fugue and fanfare led by the brass.  

Please note that Nicola Benedetti, who was previously scheduled to perform Brahms’ Violin Concerto during the Bartók and Brahms program (now titled Bartók and Mozart), has withdrawn from her LA Phil engagement as she is expecting her first child. She will be replaced by Inon Barnatan, who will perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25.

This performance is generously supported in part by the Kohl Virtuoso Violin Fund.
