The Wallis Presents Acclaimed Pianist Jeremy Denk


The Wallis
9390 N Santa Monica Blvd.
Beverly Hills, CA


Jeremy Denk, the winner of a MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship, the Avery Fisher Prize, and Musical America’s Instrumentalist of the Year award, performs scintillating classics on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 7:30 pm, at The Wallis’ Bram Goldsmith Theater. On the program are Mozart's Rondo in A minor, K.511; Prokofiev's Visions fugitives; Beethoven's Sonata No. 30 in E, Op. 109, and An die ferne Geliebte (arr. LISZT); and Schumann's Fantasy in C, Op. 17. Lauded by critics around the globe, Denk was described by The New York Times as “…a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination – both for his penetrating intellectual engagement with the music and for the generosity of his playing.“

"We are proud to present this evening with Jeremy Denk, one of America’s foremost pianists, as part of Music @ The Wallis," says Paul Crewes, The Wallis’ Artistic Director. “To experience his artistry in the intimacy of the Goldsmith will be particularly compelling."

Single tickets for the performance are now available for $45 - $95. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit, call 310.746.4000, or stop by in person at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Ticket Services located at 9390 N. Santa Monica Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA 90210.
