Inon Barnatan, Piano

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Vocal luster, magnetic stage presence, and a sense of the sheer love of singing makes every appearance by soprano Renée Fleming an unforgettable evening. Renowned for her “big, beautiful voice” (The New York Times) and uncanny ability to communicate the essence of a song or operatic aria, Fleming is simply an irresistible performer.
