Performance Information

“One of his generation’s most eloquent and thoughtful interpreters” – New York Times

Perhaps the New York Times said it best: “Mr. Denk, clearly, is a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination—both for his penetrating intellectual engagement with the music and for the generosity of his playing.” In this evening of music in the intimate Terrace Theater, the MacArthur “Genius Award” winner returns to explore a variety of variations before ending his program with Schumann’s beloved “Fantasy in C Major.” 

Jeremy Denk also appears this season in recital with Joshua Bell and Steven Isserlis on May 1.

This performance is made possible in part through the generous support of Dr. Gary Mather and Ms. Christina Co Mather, and Gordon and Lisa Rush.
