Watch our world premiere video stream below as pianist Jeremy Denk explores Bach’s life and his most iconic work, kicking off his artist-in-residence series at The Greene Space at WQXR.

Tonight, join Denk for analysis and interpretation as he takes a deep dive into four of the most fascinating moments from Book 1 of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier.

A winner of the MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and the Avery Fisher Prize, Denk will draw audiences into the technical, musicological, cultural and philosophical elements involved in his own approach to this deeply personal work, and through this series look at how these timeless themes and shared aspects of the human experience can help to unite us in these divided times.
