Pianist Jeremy Denk, a MacArthur “Genius” Fellow and winner of the Avery Fisher Prize, leaps from the flighty energy of a Bach Partita to the heartrending turns of works by Clara Schumann and Frédéric Chopin to Missy Mazzioli’s virtuosic Heartbreaker. Denk truly is, as he was described by the New York Times, “a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs.” The program concludes with Franz Schubert’s triumphant A major Piano Sonata, which shows off the worlds of expression that can be created on a single keyboard.
