Inon Barnatan, Anthony McGill, Alisa Weilerstein

Presented by Fontana at Western Michigan University - Dalton Center Recital Hall

Brought together by Music Accord’s commission of the extraordinary composer Joseph Hallman, long-time recital partners Inon Barnatan and Alisa Weilerstein join forces with the clarinet virtuoso Anthony McGill for a thrilling evening of clarinet trios.


Inon Barnatan is a true poet of the keyboard: refined, searching, and unfailingly communicative. Cellist Alisa Weilerstein’s passion, commitment and breathtaking technique combined with undeniable musicianship make her one of today’s most exciting artists.

Joining Barnatan and Weilerstein is Anthony McGill, Principal Clarinet in the New York Philharmonic. McGill previously served as Principal Clarinet of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra is widely recognized as one of the world’s finest solo, chamber, and orchestral musicians.

“Weilerstein’s cello is her id. She doesn’t give the impression that making music involves will at all. She and the cello seem simply to be one and the same.” – Los Angeles Times

On Barnatan: “This is superior playing, in which penetrating musicianship, compelling interpretive insight and elegant pianism achieve near perfect equilibrium.” – BBC Music

On McGill: “The pristine technique, the breadth of tone coloring, the expressive richness of phrasing – all…more impressive than ever.” – The Baltimore Sun
