Notes & Reviews:

Brilliant Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan debuts on Avie with Darknesse Visible, an album of colorful and atmospheric masterpieces by French composers Ravel and Debussy, and Englishmen Thomas Adés and Ronald Stevenson. Inspired by the title track, Adés' Darknesse Visible - a wondrous and dreamlike prism on the John Dowland song "In Darkness Let Me Dwell" - Inon chose works that are linked by different characteristics of darkness in the music.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Avie's recorded piano sound is state of the art, so the wonderful performances are matched by recorded quality. Barnatan is moving into the world-class arena with this kind of playing, and one hopes that his career will continue to grow. I feel that, among pianists in their 30s, he can already be counted as one in the top echelon. I hope that his third CD arrives for review in less than the five years between his first and second solo discs.
