Overview

Pianist Jeremy Denk curates and performs in a series of events exploring J.S. Bach’s life and his most iconic work as artist-in-residence at The Greene Space.

A winner of the MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and the Avery Fisher Prize, Denk will draw audiences into the technical, musicological, cultural and philosophical elements involved in his own approach to this deeply personal work, and look at how these timeless themes and shared aspects of the human experience can help to unite us in these divided times.

“What you find here is completely new, rejuvenating, alive,” Denk says of Well-Tempered Clavier. “It doesn’t bother tugging at your heartstrings, it just enters your bloodstream.”
