Jeremy Denk's new French Impressions album with violinist Joshua Bell recently topped the Billboardclassical chart, and on February 16 the pianist looks forward to performing one of his signature works, Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1, with the Orchestra of St. Luke's under Sir Roger Norrington at Carnegie Hall. It was with Beethoven's First Piano Concerto that Denk made his Los Angeles Philharmonic debut last March, stepping in at the eleventh hour to replace Martha Argerich. The Los Angeles Times found his performance "riveting," while the Huffington Postreported that "the audience erupted in applause and wouldn't let Denk go." The pianist returns to New York's 92nd Street Y on March 4 to help present "The Prodigy and the Ponytail: The Life and Music of Mozart," before heading back to Carnegie Hall on March 30, for an "American Mavericks" program with the San Francisco Symphony and Michael TilsonThomas. Also in the "American Mavericks" series, Denk is set to perform Henry Cowell's rarely-heard Piano Concerto with these same forces in San Francisco and Ann Arbor, as well as on an upcoming release on the orchestra's hit SFS Media label.
