“Mr. Denk, clearly, is a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination – both for his penetrating intellectual engagement with the music and for the generosity of his playing.”
– New York Times

One of America’s most thought-provoking, multi-faceted, and compelling artists, pianist Jeremy Denk is the winner of a 2013 MacArthur Fellowship, the 2014 Avery Fisher Prize, and Musical America’s 2014 Instrumentalist of the Year award. He has appeared as soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the symphony orchestras of Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and London, and regularly gives recitals in New York, Washington, Boston, Philadelphia, and throughout the United States. Next season, he looks forward to launching a four-season tenure as an Artistic Partner of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra; making debuts with the Cleveland Orchestra under Susanna Mälkki and the New York Philharmonic led by Esa-Pekka Salonen; appearing as a soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and San Francisco Symphony; and performing Bach concertos on tour with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. Future engagements also include a return to the Wigmore Hall, and his recital debut at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam playing the Goldberg Variations, which he will also perform as part of the Barbican's season at LSO St. Luke's, and throughout Europe, including performances at Piano aux Jacobins, the Rheingau Musik Festival, and the Thüringer Bachwochen ... read full bio
