Alisa Weilerstein, cello and Inon Barnatan, piano
FCM's celebration of Beethoven’s 250th Birthday will conclude when Alisa Weilerstein and Inon Barnatan play the complete Beethoven Sonatas for cello and piano. Weilerstein, a MacArthur Fellow before the age of 30, has been honored with both the Leonard Bernstein Prize and an Avery Fisher Career Grant. Barnatan is completing his third season as Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic and is an FCM audience favorite returning after last season’s performance with the St. Lawrence String Quartet.
“Their interpretations were like a series of marvelously expressive close-ups: every note and phrase pinned to an exact emotion, every emotion saturating the frame.” – Boston Globe
