    Stephen Gosling Replaces Jeremy Denk in Concert with Ensemble ACJW, March 20


    Carnegie Hall today announced that pianist Stephen Gosling will replace Jeremy Denk in concert to perform Charles Ives’s Piano Trio with Ensemble ACJW—the performance arm of The Academy—at the Greenwich Village nightclub (Le) Poisson Rouge on Sunday, March 20 at 7:30 p.m. Mr. Gosling has graciously agreed to step in for Mr. Denk, who will replace Martha Argerich at the Los Angeles Philharmonic, playing Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1 under the direction of Gustavo Dudamel in concerts in Los Angeles from March 17–20.

    The rest of Ensemble ACJW’s program remains as announced and includes Mozart’s Andante and Variations for Piano Four Hands in G Major, Jonathan Dawe’s Symphony of Imaginary Numbers, a selection of György Kurtág’s Bach Transcriptions, and Ives’s The Unanswered Question. James Baker will conduct the Ensemble.

    Pianist Stephen Gosling is a ubiquitous presence on the New York new music scene, and has also performed throughout the U.S., Europe, Latin America, and Asia. His playing has been hailed as "brilliant," "electric," and "luminous and poised" (New York Times), possessing "utter clarity and conviction" (Washington Post), and "extraordinary virtuosity" (Houston Chronicle). A native of Sheffield, England, Mr. Gosling relocated to New York in 1989 to begin studies at The Juilliard School. Mr. Gosling was for three years pianist of the Aspen Contemporary Ensemble, and appeared in several seasons of the Summergarden series at MOMA. He has also performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Grant Park Festival in Chicago, the Bang on a Can Marathon, Bargemusic, the 2001 Great Day in New York festival, and the PAN festival in Seoul, Korea. He is a member of both Ensemble Sospeso and the New York New Music Ensemble, and has performed with Orpheus, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Speculum Musicae, DaCapo Chamber Players, the Orchestra of St. Luke's, Continuum, the League of Composers/ISCM Chamber Players, and Da Camera of Houston. He has also participated in Off-Broadway productions and collaborated with a number of dance companies, including American Ballet Theater and Parsons Dance Project.
