Jeremy Denk is one of America’s foremost pianists. Winner of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and the Avery Fisher Prize, Denk was recently elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Denk returns frequently to Carnegie Hall and in recent seasons has appeared with the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony and Cleveland Orchestra, as well as on tour with Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.
In 2018.19, Denk embarked on a three-week recital tour of the US, including appearances in Washington D.C., Seattle, Cleveland and Pittsburgh, and culminating in his return to Carnegie Hall. His orchestral highlights include play-directing Mozart with the Toronto Symphony.
Denk is also known for his original and insightful writing on music, which Alex Ross praises for its "arresting sensitivity and wit." One of his New Yorker contributions, "Every Good Boy Does Fine," forms the basis of a book for future publication by Random House.
