Fun Facts

  • Barnatan describes performing as transformative: “I don’t want an audience to listen to me playing a piece—I would love for them to feel like the piece is being created at that very moment.”
  • Barnatan has performed worldwide with the Hong Kong, Los Angeles, London and Helsinki philharmonic orchestras as well as the Chicago, Baltimore and Seattle symphonies.
  • Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9 was banned by the Soviet regime shortly after its premiere for its “ideological weakness” and its failure to “reflect the true spirit of the people of the Soviet Union.”
