Pianist Jeremy Denk perform at 7:30 p.m. CDT Tuesday, April 15, in Guerry Auditorium as part of the University of the South's Performing Arts Series.
Mr. Denk has appeared as soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the symphony orchestras of Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and London.
Mr. Denk regularly gives recitals throughout the United States; this season, orchestral collaborations will take the pianist to three continents. He is known for his original and insightful writing on music, which has appeared in the New Yorker, New Republic, and New York Times Book Review.
He was awarded the 2014 Avery Fisher Prize, and was named a 2013 MacArthur Fellow, one of 24 recipients of the year’s “genius grants” awarded for extraordinary originality, dedication in creative pursuits, and marked capacity for self-direction. Mr. Denk’s pairing of Beethoven’s final piano sonata and selected György Ligeti études was named one of the best discs of 2012 by the New Yorker, NPR, and the Washington Post.
