Devilish fingers and pure poetry

By Jeremy Denk

together with Nijmeegse Stichting voor Kamermuziek

Jeremy Denk is a pianist we rarely get to see in the Netherlands. You may know him from his book Every Good Boy Does Fine, one of last year’s summertime bestsellers. His writing is as captivating as his playing: ‘a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs’, in the words of the New York Times. 

Thankfully, his inventive program will satisfy all listeners. From Bach to a ragtime by Scott Joplin & Louis Chauvin. From the hypnotic sounds of Ravel’s extremely virtuoso Gaspard de la nuit to Rzewsk’s Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues on a workers’ protest song. Why do these pieces fit so well together? Jeremy Denk would not be Jeremy Denk if he didn’t explain exactly that during the concert.
