    Jeremy Denk launched Bach's Well-Tempered Lens, a series of online events for WNYC/WQXR's The Greene Space in NYC with a deep dive into Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier Book I. Denk was at the piano performing and doing analysis and interpretation from his upstate barn. "When I started practicing it, I felt that I was plugged into a kind of contentment that I wasn't used to having," Denk says. "It made me feel a kind of happiness and a kind of at-oneness with time that I wasn't really used to." You can watch it here.

    Jeremy Denk will lead a three-part series of online events for WNYC/WQXR's Jerome L. Greene Performance Space in NYC. The series, Bach's Well-Tempered Lens, features performances and conversations exploring J.S. Bach’s life and his Well-Tempered Clavier Book I. The events take place on April 7, April 27, and May 11. “Listening to Jeremy Denk play Bach," says Jennifer Sendrow, the Greene Space Executive Producer, "is a powerful antidote to life’s chaos, bringing people together to revel in music that transcends time and continues to inspire joy and provoke our curiosity.”

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.

Biography (Excerpt): 

Pianist Jeremy Denk's new album, c. 1300–c. 2000, presents a centuries-long story of constantly emerging possibilities and styles of musical expression, an evolution drawn in a single arc by the music of twenty-four different composers, from Guillaume de Machaut to György Ligeti. The Telegraph says: "Quite exhilarating."
