About This Performance

MacArthur Foundation “genius grant” winner Jeremy Denk is “a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination” (New York Times)—yet to hear him play Bach is a particular treat. Of Denk’s performance of The Well-Tempered Clavier, a Times critic wrote: ”He played this touchstone Bach score with crisp articulation, verve and a keen feeling for the character of each variation.”

Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book I, BWV 846-869

This concert is supported by Susan Bloom and A. Charles Winkelman
