Jeremy Denk, one of America’s foremost pianists, takes the stage, playing not one, but two Mozart piano concertos. Mozart’s piano concertos were introduced with the composer as soloist at public concerts and are now considered some of his greatest compositions. Denk, one of America’s foremost pianists and classical music bloggers, was the winner of a 2013 MacArthur “Genius” grant, and in 2014 was the recipient of the Avery Fisher Prize.
