From the Wall Street Journal: “Pianist Builds Momentum”
Copyright protected, so just a grace note:
MARCH 26, 2011
” Pianist Jeremy Denk is having an exceptionally busy 2011.
Jeremy Denk makes his solo recital debut at Carnegie Hall Sunday.
After playing an intense schedule in January and February, he accepted two major—and unscheduled—engagements in March when other artists fell ill.
And on Sunday, Mr. Denk makes his solo recital debut at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium—replacing Maurizio Pollini.
‘I thought I was going to be on vacation,’ the 40-year-old said. Jeremy Denk makes his solo recital debut at Carnegie Hall Sunday. Instead, he’ll be onstage playing Charles Ives’s Concord sonata and Bach’s Goldberg Variations.
At Zankel in February, Mr. Denk played Ligeti’s Etudes and the Goldberg Variations. At a previous concert there in 2008, he played Ives’s Concord and Beethoven’s Hammerklavier.
Q2 listeners know Jeremy Denk very well. We are delighted with his success.
