American-Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan performing the world-premiere performance of his own new re-envisioned arrangement of Rachmaninoff’s 'Symphonic Dances' for solo piano.

Recorded live on the 3rd of July, 2020 – at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, in Katonah, New York.

“Recently, I came to know the recording of Rachmaninoff actually playing this piece on one piano for Eugene Ormandy before the orchestral premiere, to show him how it goes ... it’s one of my favorite recordings of Rachmaninoff playing anything ... " Inon has this week told the Violin Channel

"The extra time due to COVID-19 made me sit down and do the transcription and I taught myself how to use notating software and it has been a real blessing for me during the lockdown ..."  he has said

"Much of this work is based on Rachmaninoff’s own transcription for two pianos along with his own playing of the work - as well incorporations from the orchestral score ... "

"I think a successful transcription is a different look at the same piece, and not trying to do an imitation of the original work ... the one-piano version is a more intimate look which is quite revealing of the work as a whole."

Inon will perform the complete transcription on the 22nd of August - at the La Jolla SUMMERFEST.
