I am looking forward to hearing Jeremy Denk perform Brahms, Bartók, and Beethoven tonight with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.
SPCO Concert Information
With Artistic Partner and pianist Jeremy
Denk, the SPCO winds show off their prowess, in a program that
encompasses stylistic elements ranging from Classical through the 20th
century. Beethoven’s Piano Quintet brings drama and high emotion, while
Bartók’s Divertimento delivers tension and playfulness combined with
elements of folk music. The sweetly sentimental theme present in the
first movement of Brahms’ Horn Trio morphs into more melancholy tones in
this piece, featuring three instruments the composer studied in his
youth—violin, piano and horn.
