An Evening With Piano Virtuoso Jeremy Denk
One of America's most celebrated musical exports, MacArthur Genius Fellowship and Avery Fisher Prize winner Jeremy Denk is no stranger to the hallowed stage of Carnegie Hall. The dynamic performer returns for a special one-night-only program of Beethoven, John Adams, Bizet, Mendelssohn and Schumann as part of the New York cultural institution's Keyboard Virtuosos I series this winter.
The piquant program of diverse works will prove to be the perfect platform for Denk, a player particularly adept at coaxing out a composition's myriad layers, from the quirky to the poetic to the downright rhapsodic. In the seasoned virtuoso's nimble hands, music unfolds with a perfectly paced narrative flow, handled with delicacy or robustness when required. His insightful playing, clarity of creative mind, powerful key touch and swirling energy make for an exceptional evening of fine pianism you won't want to miss.
