Denk returns to Carnegie Hall with a program that juxtaposes a monumental piece from an earlier time with no-less-imposing 20th-century masterworks. But as Alex Ross of The New Yorker wrote about Denk’s 2008 Zankel Hall recital of Beethoven and Ives sonatas, this thoughtful interpreter “has the chops, the brains, and the heart to pull it off.”

“Hamelin’s legend will grow,” writes The New Yorker’s Alex Ross. “Right now there is no one like him.” This unique pianist’s diverse recital in Zankel Hall includes Schumann’s fantastic set of miniatures and Liszt’s mammoth showpiece based on music from Bellini’s Norma. It’s a program that’s sure to add you to the list of Hamelin’s admirers.
