Acclaimed pianist Inon Barnatan has performed as a soloist with leading orchestras and was the inaugural Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic. He presents a program of Moments Musicaux ("Musical Moments") by Franz Schubert, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Avner Dorman.
Schubert's six-piece set, written between 1823 and 1828, was the first to use the title and exhibits Schubert's penchant for mode mixture, improvisation, and harmonic twists. Inspired by these, Rachmaninoff wrote his own set 70 years later which displays his maturing technique for piano composition. Similarly inspired by Schubert's example, Dorman wrote a pair of Moments Musicaux in 2003 which makes use of mathematical models, polytonality, and diverse stylistic influences.
