    The Barbican Centre in London has announced its 2017–18 Classic Music concert season, in which pianist Jeremy Denk will be Artist in Residence at Milton Court Concert Hall. As such, Denk will lead four concerts throughout the season, with programs ranging from Mozart to Gershwin, from a collaboration with the Britten Sinfonia to a personal meditation on the Variation form. "Jeremy Denk isn't like other pianists," says the Barbican. "He's capable of spectacular musical gymnastics and the most eloquent insights—often in the same breath. In short ... he’s the ideal choice to be Milton Court’s Artist in Residence this season."

About Jeremy Denk

  • Jeremy Denk has appeared as soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the symphony orchestras of Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and London. He regularly gives recitals in New York, Washington, Boston, Philadelphia, and throughout the United States. His 2012-13 season includes a return to Carnegie Hall in recital, as part of a 13-city tour of the US, as well as a performance of Bach’s complete set of six keyboard concertos in a single evening with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. 

    Denk is known for his original and insightful writing on music, praised by Alex Ross for its “arresting sensitivity and wit.” Denk’s writing has appeared in The New Yorker, New Republic, and on the front page of the New York Times Book Review. His website think denk, recounting his experiences of touring, performing, and practicing, was recently selected for inclusion in the Library of Congress Web Archives. Denk looks forward to performing and curating as music director of the 2014 Ojai Music Festival, for which he is also composing the libretto to a semi-satirical opera.

    In 2012, Denk made his debut as a Nonesuch Records artist with a pairing of masterpieces old and new: Beethoven’s final piano sonata and selected György Ligeti Etudes. The disc was named one of the best discs of 2012 by The New Yorker, NPR, and the Washington Post. In 2013, Denk releases a recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. He has cultivated relationships with many living composers, and has several commissioning projects currently in progress.

    Denk has toured frequently with violinist Joshua Bell. He also regularly collaborates with cellist Steven Isserlis. He has appeared at numerous festivals, including the Italian and American Spoleto Festivals, and the Santa Fe Chamber Music, Verbier, Ravinia, Tanglewood, Aspen, and “Mostly Mozart” Festivals. He lives in New York City, and his web site and blog are at jeremydenk.net.
