CORNELL CONCERT SERIES RECOMMENDS
7:00PM | WEDNESDAY | November 11, 2020
Jeremy Denk is one of America’s foremost pianists. Winner of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, and the Avery Fisher Prize, Denk was recently elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Denk returns frequently to Carnegie Hall and in recent seasons has appeared with the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, and Cleveland Orchestra, as well as on tour with Academy of St Martin in the Fields, and at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC Proms.
In 19-20, Denk plays Bach’s Well-Tempered Klavier Book 1, culminating in performances at Lincoln Center in New York and the Barbican in London. He returns to Carnegie Hall to perform Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy with Orchestra St. Luke’s, and makes his solo debut at the Royal Festival Hall with the London Philharmonic performing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto no. 4. He also makes his solo recital debut at the Boulez Saal in Berlin performing works by Bach, Ligeti, Berg, and Schumann, and returns to the Piano aux Jacobins Festival in France, as well as London’s Wigmore Hall, ahead of his residency there in the 20-21 season. Further performances abroad include his debut with the Bournemouth Symphony, and his returns to the City of Birmingham Symphony, and the Piano Espoo Festival in Finland, where he will perform concerti by Bach, Mozart and Elliot Carter.
Denk is also known for his original and insightful writing on music, which Alex Ross praises for its “arresting sensitivity and wit.” He wrote the libretto for Steven Stucky’s comic opera The Classical Style, and his writing has appeared in the New Yorker, the New Republic, The Guardian, and on the front page of the New York Times Book Review. One of his New Yorker contributions, “Every Good Boy Does Fine,” forms the basis of a book for future publication by Random House in the US, and Macmillan in the UK.
