One of America’s most thought-provoking, multi-faceted, and compelling artists, pianist Jeremy Denk is the winner of a 2013 MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, the 2014 Avery Fisher Prize, and Musical America’s 2014 Instrumentalist of the Year award. He incites renewed love for pieces commonly played in the repertoire and shines new light onto lesser-known works. The New York Times called Denk a musician “you want to hear no matter what he performs.”

–> LMP CRITIC’S PICK. “Denk has programmed a dim sum of pieces to illustrate the way composers across the centuries have played with the beat… Syncopation happens whenever a rhythmic gesture thwarts the “normal” pattern of stressed and unstressed beats. That millisecond of being caught off balance generates a little thrill…” ~ Thomas May, music critic, excerpted from the Seattle Times
