Jeremy Denk

Denk has performed multiple times at Carnegie Hall, and in recent years has worked with such orchestras as the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Further afield, he has performed multiple times at the BBC Proms, and appeared in such halls as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and Boulez Saal in Berlin. He also performs extensively across the UK, including recently with the London Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, and play-directing the Britten Sinfonia.

His New York Times Bestselling memoir Every Good Boy Does Fine published to universal acclaim by Random House in 2022. The Guardian heralded it as “an elegant, frank and well-structured memoir that entirely resists cliche. A rare feat… it makes the reader care about Denk beyond his talent for playing the piano.”

Denk’s recording of the Goldberg Variations for Nonesuch Records reached No. 1 on the Billboard Classical Charts. Additionally the New Yorker, NPR, and the Washington Post named his recording of Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 32 in C Minor as one of the best discs of the year. Denk also has a long-standing attachment to the music of American visionary Charles Ives. His recording of Ives’s two piano sonatas similarly featured in many “best of the year” lists.

In the 2022-23 season, Denk will continue his multi-season exploration of Book 1 of Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier. and will also perform with orchestras and in recitals across Europe and the United States. An avid chamber musician, Denk will also embark on a US tour with the renowned Takács Quartet.
