Charles Ives:  A Conversation with Jeremy Denk

Monday, January 19, 2015, 6:00 p.m.

Join us at Curious Theatre Company for an unforgettable evening with pianist Jeremy Denk as he talks about the world and works of American composer, Charles Ives. One of the foremost interpreters of Ives’ piano music, Denk will speak about the composer and his influences.

Denk will be joined by Christy Montour-Larson, director of Curious Theatre Company’s regional premiere of Charles Ives Take Me Home. In this inspiring new work, modernist composer Charles Ives officiates a generational scrimmage between a virtuoso violinist and his basketball coach daughter. It’s a difficult father/daughter relationship in which dissonant passions create a fugue of disappointments and missed chances.  Our thanks to Onofrio Piano for donating a piano for this event.

Yo-Yo Ma, cello

This recital is now sold-out.  

YO-YOM~1

He is, as the Washington Post’s Anne Midgette put it in 2011, “the best-known, most versatile, most engaged, music soloist in this country and perhaps in the world.”A joyous presence in the American cultural landscape for more than three decades, Yo-Yo Ma stands as our country’s cellist-in-chief as well as the music world’s most enthusiastic teacher. His tone is luminous, his reach ambitious, his passion for music infectious. As an appointed United Nations Messenger of Peace, he has organized teaching and mentoring programs, inspiring students across the world to love and honor music. His own collaborations go well beyond the traditional boundaries of classical music – notably with his Silk Road Project – celebrating the universality of music itself.

This will be a solo recital.
