Opus 3 Artists is thrilled to announce that pianist and 2013 MacArthur Fellow Jeremy Denk has been named Musical America's 2014 Instrumentalist of the Year. Jeremy Denk has been called "one of his generation's most eloquent and thoughtful interpreters" (New York Times). His multi-faceted artistry is evident in his flourishing concert schedule, Billboard-topping second release with Nonesuch (Bach's Goldberg Variations), widely read blog (Think Denk), and articles for the New Yorker, which led to a Random House book commission. As music director for the 68th annual Ojai Music Festival in 2014, he will not only perform on piano but also write his first opera libretto in collaboration with composer Steven Stucky, based on the late Charles Rosen's The Classical Style. In September, Denk was named a 2013 MacArthur Fellow. Popularly known as a "genius award," it is presented to "an extraordinary group of individuals who collectively reflect the breadth and depth of American creativity".

"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.”
The New York Times
