Venue

Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Hailed as one of America’s foremost pianists, Jeremy Denk’s creative blend of virtuosic dexterity and colorful imagination has earned him praise as “an artist you want to hear no matter what he performs” (The New York Times). Winner of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and the Avery Fisher Prize, he is also lauded for his original and insightful writing about music. In his return to Meany, Denk explores an intriguing selection of mazurkas by Chopin and Thomas Adès, in addition to masterworks by Beethoven and Schumann. 

An unerring sense of the music’s dramatic structure and a great actor’s intuition for timing.
