Pianist Jeremy Denk will present a Valentine's Day concert at Gettysburg College's Majestic Theater as part of the Sunderman Conservatory's Chamber Music Concert Series.
Denk's repertoire ranges from the 18th and 19th centuries to the leading composers of today. The New York Times called his performances, "bracing, effortlessly virtuosic and utterly joyous."
Feb. 14's event will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $23 or free with Gettysburg College ID. Information is available at 717-337-8200 or www.gettysburgmajestic.org.
Denk, who frequently accompanies famed violinist Joshua Bell, has received acclaim for his engagements with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the St. Louis and San Francisco Symphonies. He won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions and the Juilliard Piano Debut Award and received a prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.
Denk is the author of the weblog Think Denk, which was praised by the New Yorker music critic Alex Ross: "Besides being a brilliant musician, Denk is simply one of the most interesting writers I know."
