Jeremy Denk (piano)


Theme and variations

The American pianist Jeremy Denk likes to point out surprising connections between stylistic periods and composers. On this occasion he will be focusing on the variation as one of the primary principles of composing. 

For this purpose he will play music by Schumann, Bizet, Beethoven and others.
