Jeremy Denk, piano

Season 31 Opening Celebration

“A pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs” (The New York Times)


Sep 26, 2021


About the Artist

One of America’s foremost pianists, Jeremy Denk has been honored with a 2013 MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, the 2014 Avery Fisher Prize, and membership in the American Academy of Arts & Sciences.

“Denk’s virtuosity is a thrill” (Los Angeles Times). His “lyrical, playful, and intensely engaging” performances (Toronto Star) reveal “an unerring sense of the music’s dramatic structure and a great actor’s intuition for timing” (The Boston Globe).

“What Mr. Denk’s playing conveys most is an inclusive consideration of where each piece came from, what it reflects about its composer and how music connects to a life’s broader concerns…he is a pianist whose fresh insights in familiar territory warrant continued acquaintance” (The New York Times).
