JEREMY DENK: BACH PARTITAS
Superstar American pianist, Jeremy Denk, was scheduled to perform Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier for us in April of 2020. Disappointingly, a certain world disaster forced the cancellation of that much-anticipated event.
Happily, we have been able to welcome the very busy Mr. Denk back for this spring. He continues his exploration of Bach keyboard works with a selection of Bach Partitas in celebration of his newest album release. The partitas are masterworks written between 1726 to 1730, and a true test of a pianist. These ostensibly simple works elaborated on a series of baroque dance forms, mining new emotional depth and technical flair with levels of perfection and grace. They are exceptional and only get more so.
Who better to share them with us than the great Bach interpreter, Jeremy Denk?
