7/25: Cleveland Orchestra

Posted By on Thu, Jul 23, 2009 at 8:00 AM

Thirty-year-old Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan won an Avery Fischer career grant earlier this year, which — along with a string of debuts with prominent orchestras — gave his career a significant boost. He’s in the middle of a North American tour, playing more than just the Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert tunes that have won him recognition. He’s extended into 20th century composers as diverse as Cesar Franck and George Gershwin. He makes his debut with the Cleveland Orchestra tonight, helping conductor Loras John Schissel — best known around here for patriotic Sousa marches — get his jazz on. Barnatan is soloist on Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, which anchors a program of music rooted in ’20s and ’30s jazz. Showtime is 8 p.m. at Blossom Music Center (1145 W. Steels Corners Rd., Cuyahoga Falls, 216.231.1111). Tickets: $21-$87. — Michael Gill
