Venue

Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

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. Denk returns to Meany with a program that examines the interplay between Bach and Schubert with four American-inspired works and culminates in Beethoven’s final piano sonata.

 

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