Event Details

Brahms' Piano Quintet, both powerful and tender, is one of the masterworks of 19th-century chamber music, almost symphonic in its breadth and depth.

Jeremy Denk is one of America’s most admired pianists, known for sharp, vibrant performances of programs that are anything but conventional. He is able to take some of the most complex music written and make it sing, bringing forth the universality and inherent beauty that we all love to find in music. Together we will explore Bach and Nancarrow canons.  

Denk describes Ives’ classic Concord Sonata as “one of the most profoundly nostalgic and tender projects in all of music." It is this American pianist's calling card, vividly portraying the idealism, strength, hope, and fierce individuality inherent in the American ethos.
