    Jeremy Denk Named Milton Court Artist in Residence in Barbican's 2017–18 Classical Music Season
    Michael Wilson

    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."

    The concerts begin on Thursday, October 12, with a selection of Mozart piano works. For the following Sunday, October 15, Denk has put together a three-part, day-long event of music celebrating the infinite variety of the variation, examining the form from both musical and philosophical perspectives.

    Denk returns to Milton Court next year, on Tuesday, February 27, 2018, to lead Britten Sinfonia on a program that includes the original jazz band version of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue paired with Stravinsky's Concerto for piano and winds and. The following weekend, on Saturday, March 3, Denk concludes his residency with a solo piano recital.

    Tickets for the Barbican's Classical Music 2017–18 season go on sale to Barbican members on Friday, January 27, and to the general public the following Friday, February 3.
