Jeremy Denk, piano (in Boston, MA)

NEC's Jordan Hall

Acclaimed pianist and author Jeremy Denk curates a program that unites female composers across the centuries. Works by Louise Farrenc and Clara Schumann, French Romantic holdout Cécile Chaminade, American pianist and composer Amy Beach, and modernist-turned-folk-revivalist Ruth Crawford Seeger sit alongside works by acclaimed contemporary composers Tania León, Meredith Monk, Phyllis Chen, and Missy Mazzoli. 

Denk pulls these diverse works and composers together to tell a story of women’s genius—both recognized and neglected in their times and remembered and forgotten in ours—and lends his insight, technical panache, and expressive style to this era-spanning program. 

This performance will also take place in Groton Hill on December 10 at 3:00 PM.

“One of the most thoughtful and reliably interesting artists of our time. ”

Cleveland Plain Dealer

“A remarkable figure, as much a thinker as a player...and as much admired for his pioneering, sometimes challenging programming as he is for his brilliantly perceptive playing. ”

The Scotsman
