Jeremy Denk performs piano music by Bach, Joplin, Stravinsky, Byrd, Hindemith, Bolcom, Nancarrow, Lambert and Mozart at Perth Concert Hall.

Kate Molleson introduces the first in a series of four programmes featuring some of the most outstanding and thought-provoking pianists of our time. From Perth Concert Hall, American pianist Jeremy Denk performs music by Byrd and Bach to Scott Joplin and Conlon Nancarrow in a programme that spans nearly 400 years of composition. A thread runs through these pieces: the importance of the bass line, dance rhythms and music that was popular at the time of writing.
