Jeremy Denk III – Solo Piano Recital

Credit: Michael Wilson

Described by the New York Times as ‘an artist you want to hear no matter what he performs’, Jeremy Denk is one of today’s most creative performing musicians, combining brilliant pianism with a ceaselessly questing imagination.   This recital is a remarkable demonstration of his virtuosity, creativity, and musical range.

Between the masterpieces by Bach and Beethoven is an extraordinary suite of pieces drawn together in the light of last year’s Black Lives Matter protests including Rzewski’s shattering ‘Winnsboro’ Cotton Mill Blues.

Denk’s playing was particularly seductive ... he added elements of both delicacy and wit to the mix.

Filmed at Dunbar Parish Church

Dunbar Parish Church, Gillespie Graham's grand red sandstone gothic church of 1821 stands proudly looking out to sea.

Damaged by fire in 1987, its spacious interior was restored with a colourful mix of ancient and modern features including an elaborate early 17th Century monument to the Earl of Dunbar and some fine 1990 stained glass by Shona McInnes and Douglas Hogg.
