Washington Performing Arts presents:
Jeremy Denk, piano, in Recital

Perhaps the New York Times said it best: “Mr. Denk, clearly, is a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination—both for his penetrating intellectual engagement with the music and for the generosity of his playing.” In this evening of music in the intimate Terrace Theater, the MacArthur “Genius Award” winner returns to explore a variety of variations by Beethoven, Adams, Bizet, and Mendelssohn, before ending his program with Schumann’s beloved “Fantasy in C Major.” 

Performance Timing: Part One - 35 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 50 min.
