Jeremy Denk plays Bach

Jeremy Denk

A set of preludes and fugues for keyboard, one in each key. It all sounds so rational, but in truth this is music of unparalleled imagination, fantasy, ingenuity and beauty from J S Bach.

‘For the profit and use of the studious musical young, and also for the special diversion of those who are already skillful in this study’ was how Bach described this collection. But for thinking-listener’s virtuoso Jeremy Denk, it’s a playground for the intellect like no other, with boundless possibilities.

End-time to be announced nearer the event.
