Jeremy Denk Contributes Article to The New Yorker, "Every Good Boy Does Fine: A Life in Piano Lessons"
Jeremy Denk has written a personal history for The New Yorker titled "Every Good Boy Does Fine: A life in piano lessons." In the article, his second contribution to the magazine, Denk offers insight on the relationship between music students and teachers by recounting a few such relationships in his own life. The New York Times, reviewing Denk's solo recital at Carnegie Hall last week, says his “colossal interpretations conveyed the sense of composers grappling with the ineffable, inventing new vocabulary to express the inexpressible." Following his recent solo debut at Boston's Jordan Hall, the Boston Globe exclaimed: “Denk gave a revelatory performance ... It would be foolish to understate how remarkably talented he is.”

The label debut from acclaimed pianist Jeremy Denk features Ligeti’s Piano Études, Books One and Two, and Beethoven’s Sonata No. 32 in C Minor, Op. 111. "The result is dazzling," says the Observer. "The Ligeti is crisp, nuanced and technically flawless, the Beethoven beautifully shaped and flexible." NPR says: "Denk plays masterfully, opening up each puzzle box in turn with vitality, wit and absolute assurance." The Independent gives the album four stars. The Arts Fuse calls it "revelatory."
