Jeremy Denk at the Wigmore Hall – Review

Jeremy Denk’s century-spanning, and versatile, programme invited glowing reviews for his performance at the Wigmore Hall on Saturday the 17th of September.

The Arts Desk | *****

The concert concluded with a Denk speciality, the Ligeti Etudes. (See video below.)

“Despite the astonishing versatility the pianist had shown throughout the evening, this music [Ligeti] remains his forte. As in the Liebestod, the subtle gradations of tone and the fluent but carefully controlled way that each climax was approached marked this out as a distinguished reading, and the thundering descent to the bottom of the keyboard brought the evening to a dramatic and unambiguous close.” The Arts Desk. 

 

 

Mr. Denk, clearly, is a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination – both for his penetrating intellectual engagement with the music and for the generosity of his playing.“   – The New York Times
