Friday Favorites - Jeremy Denk & SPCO

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.
