Pianist Jeremy Denk returns to Union College Concert Series

Publication Date

Prominent American pianist Jeremy Denk performs on Sunday, Oct. 25 at 3 p.m. in Memorial Chapel.

The Series welcomes back pianist Jeremy Denk offering a diverse program of Bach’s English Suite No. 3 in G Minor, BWV 808, Byrd’s Pavan & Galliard from My Lady Nevell’s Book, Haydn’s Fantasia in C Major, Hob. XVII:4, and Schumann’s Carnaval, Op. 9. In the middle of this classic repertoire he inserts an inventive set of 20th century ragtimes.

Jeremy Denk has established himself as one of America’s most thought-provoking, multi-faceted, and compelling artists. A winner of the MacArthur Award in 2013, he 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.

Last season, he began a four-season tenure as an artistic partner of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra; made debuts with the Cleveland Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic; and performed Bach concertos with Academy of St. Martinin-the-Fields in London and on tour throughout the US. Future engagements include appearances with the Finnish Radio Symphony, a return to London’s Wigmore Hall, and his recital debut at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
