J.S. Bach: The Well-Tempered Klavier, Book 1, BWV 846-869

Jeremy Denk has written that in Bach’s Well-Tempered Klavier “the raw materials of musical meaning…are revealed like stage machinery that suddenly comes out from behind the scenes.” Hear this revered masterpiece in one evening in the intimate environment of the Menil Collection, performed by one of today’s foremost pianists. The New York Times has extolled Jeremy Denk’s “profound affinity with Bach” and the Philadelphia Inquirer called his performance of The Goldberg Variations “mesmerizing.”

“He played this touchstone Bach score with crisp articulation, verve and a keen feeling for the character of each variation.” — The New York Times

“People think of Bach as this incredibly serious and learned composer. One of the things that always strikes me about him is the energy and the sense of play. Once he has an idea, he sees all the possibilities of it, and he can’t resist exploring them all – even sometimes into very strange realms. For me, along with the learned philosopher Bach there is the child Bach, playing with musical notes.” – Jeremy Denk
