"Let go, in some ways, of the idea of perfection," the pianist says. "Make the thing in front of you the best it can be."

In this Sonatas & Soundscapes interview, pianist Inon Barnatan speaks with host Bradley Fuller about his artistic values, the importance of chamber music, some of the unique concerns pianists have, the music he performed at Spoleto Festival USA 2023, and a special memory of his late colleague, Geoff Nuttall.
