“Mr. Denk, clearly is a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination.”—The New York Times

For his only New York solo recital of the season, pianist Jeremy Denk offers a dialogue (of sorts) between the Viennese Schubert and Czech Janáček, whose miniature lyrical masterpieces alternate in an imaginative conversation. In a festive finale, Denk then takes us to Carnaval, Schumann’s musical portrait gallery of revelers at a masked ball—one of his most beloved and delightful works.

Denk is renowned for his multi-faceted artistry: he is a 2013 recipient of the MacArthur “Genius” Award, Musical America’s 2014 Instrumentalist of the Year, winner of the Avery Fisher Prize, the new artistic partner of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, a popular writer and blogger, and librettist of a new opera, The Classical Style: An Opera (of Sorts), which receives its New York premiere in December.
