Jeremy Denk and Beethoven: Genius fellows

Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto is an undeniable masterpiece, enjoyed by audiences for more than two centuries. Yet, despite that amazing longevity, what will we hear when a thinker’s thinker, a pianist’s pianist … a genius … puts his considerable talents and fresh perspective at the service of this masterpiece? A unique interpretation, a marvelous performance, an unmissable concert. As the San Diego Union Tribune noted, the MacArthur“Genius” Fellow’s technique delivers results:

Some pianists rely on the resonance of the piano’s pedal to create great volume, but not Denk. His pedaling was remarkably clean. It was a marvel to see his hands suspended 8 inches above the keys, descending with little warning, producing a loud, full, yet musical sonority. Denk’s clean, powerful tone helped avoid the sonic bluster that so many pianists succumb to in this concerto.”

Come hear what Denk, Music Director Xian Zhang and the NJSO can do with Beethoven’s genius, in a program that also includes Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique and Beethoven's Overture to The Creatures of Prometheus.

Only two performances!
