Winner of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, the Avery Fisher Prize, Musical America’s Instrumentalist of the Year Award, longtime 92Y favorite Jeremy Denk offers up a thoughtful program no piano music lover should miss. On the bill: one of Mozart’s finest works for solo piano… Prokofiev’s whimsical early miniatures… a late Beethoven masterpiece with a transcendent finale… and one of the summits of the piano repertoire — Schumann’s “Fantasie” — paired with a virtuosic transcription of the Beethoven song cycle to which Schumann pays homage.
“A pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs… both for his penetrating intellectual engagement with the music and for the generosity of his playing.”
