Performance with Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center


"The skillfully balanced program began with seven lieder calibrated by Mr. Barnatan and baritone Randall Scarlata to underscore the pensive, withdrawn quality of the music with tenderness and refreshing vigor. Mr. Scarlata enlarged loss and longing, for instance, in Herbst and Vor meiner Wiege with restrained, but sensuous coloration. Mr. Barnatan tempered joy and transcendence in Bei dir allein and Des fischers Liebesglück with nuanced phrasing and dynamics. Their collaboration in Die Taubenpost exposed piercing simplicity in Schubert's yearning."
