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—both for his penetrating intellectual engagement with the music and for the generosity of his playing” (New York Times). Having sold out his last five PCMS appearances, this Avery Fisher Career Grant winner returns to intimate Benjamin Franklin Hall to demonstrate once again why he is one of the most compelling, thoughtful, and communicative artists before the public today.

R. Schumann: Kinderszenen, Op. 15
C. Schumann: Three Romances
MazzoliBolts of Loving Thunder
Brahms: Four Piano Pieces, Op. 119
