On Wednesday, March 20 at 8 pm in Whitaker Center, pianist Jeremy Denk, described by the New York Times as“… a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs…” will perform a wide-ranging program of music by Bach, Beethoven, Liszt and Bartok. He will repeat the same program in Carnegie Hall just two days later.
American pianist Jeremy Denk has steadily built a reputation as an unusual and compelling artist, with a broad and thought-provoking repertoire. He has appeared as soloist with many major orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the symphony orchestras of Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and London. He regularly gives recitals in New York, Washington, Boston, Philadelphia, and around the United States. This season he makes solo appearances in venues including Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium and London’s Wigmore Hall, and plays concertos by Mozart, Beethoven, and Ravel. Denk is known for his witty and personal music writing, which has appeared in the New Yorker, the front page of the New York Times Book Review, Newsweek, and on the website of NPR Music. He looks forward to performing and curating as artistic director of the 2014 Ojai Music Festival, for which he is also composing the libretto to a semi-satirical opera.
