Pianist Inon Barnatan and cellist Alisa Weilerstein present an evening of classics at the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts, Friday, March 28 at 8 p.m., closing the 2013-2014 Flora Glenn Candler Concert Series.

The Emory program from these musicians whose performance is described as "alluring and passionate" includes Debussy’s Sonata for Cello and Piano, Schubert’s Fantasia in C Major, D. 934, op.159, as well as works from Rachmaninoff and contemporary composer Lera Auerbach.

Barnatan's most recent album, "Darknesse Visible," was named one of the top classical recordings of 2012 by the New York Times. In 2009, Barnatan was awarded the Avery Fisher Career Grant.

Weilerstein was awarded the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 2011.
