Jeremy Denk, Piano

Durham-born pianist Jeremy Denk, a 2013 MacArthur Fellow and winner of the 2014 Avery Fisher Prize, has steadily built a reputation as a refined and compelling artist with a broad and thought-provoking repertoire. In addition, Denk has achieved increasing recognition for his original and insightful writing on classical music, which The New Yorker critic Alex Ross praises for its “arresting sensitivity and wit.”

Denk’s return to Duke Performances features Haydn’s dazzlingly inventive Sonata in C Major; selections from Janácek’s On the Overgrown Path, inspired by Moravian folk melodies; and dance music from Schubert’s Moments musicaux and Ländler. The program ends with the Mozart Rondo in A Minor, K. 511, an intimate and melancholy piece, and Schumann’s Carnaval, a brilliant suite of twenty short dances and tone-pictures.
