Hailed as one of his generation's foremost pianists, this MacArthur "genius" is also celebrated for his original and insightful writing on music, with articles published in The Guardian and The New Yorker. His unique blend of virtuosic dexterity and colorful imagination has earned him praise as "an artist you want to hear no matter what he performs" (The New York Times). This season, he explores popular themes, homages to great masters and a range of "variations." 

Hearing Mr. Denk’s bracing, effortlessly virtuosic and utterly joyous performance, one would never guess how phenomenally difficult the piano part is.
 — The New York Times
