MacArthur Foundation ‘Genius Grant’ fellow Jeremy Denk is “a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination” (The New York Times). One of America’s foremost pianists, who possesses a “profound affinity with Bach” (The New York Times), Denk takes on Bach’s mesmerizing The Well-Tempered Clavier — one of his most beautiful and difficult works. This revered masterpiece, deemed the crowning jewel of the Baroque era, strolls and stretches its preludes and fugues across every key signature possible. A feat of passion, prowess, and joy of expression, you will be swept away on a sonic journey of mood, interpretation, and imagination.
