MacArthur Foundation “genius grant” winner Jeremy Denk is “a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination—both for his penetrating intellectual engagement with the music and for the generosity of his playing” (The New York Times). Having sold out his last three PCMS appearances at the Perelman Theater, the Avery Fisher Career Grant winner and The New Yorker writer returns to demonstrate once again why he is one of the most compelling and communicative artists before the public today.

Medieval to Modern

Jeremy Denk charts the history of Western music from the Medieval and Renaissance worlds of Machaut, Couperin and Frescobaldi to Bach, Beethoven and Brahms, the modernists Stravinsky, Cage, Ligeti and Adams, and back to Machaut.

This performance features a free pre-concert lecture starting at 6:45 PM with David Dubal.
