Academy of St. Martin in the Fields with Jeremy Denk


Location: Leighton Concert Hall, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

Pianist Jeremy Denk joins the brilliant ensemble, now under the direction of Joshua Bell, for two J.S. Bach keyboard concerti. 

Both the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields and Jeremy Denk make their third appearance on the Presenting Series, this time together. After five decades as England’s elite ensemble under the leadership of Sir Neville Marriner, Indiana native and violin superstar Joshua Bell succeeded Marriner as Music Director in 2011. As a MacArthur Foundation “Genius” grant recipient and 2014 Musical America Instrumentalist of the Year, Jeremy Denk adds deeply intelligent and expressive talents to his brilliant performances.
