The Ramsi P. Tick Memorial Concert Series continues triumphantly Tuesday, with an appearance by pianist Jeremy Denk. Denk was on the series before, accompanying violinist Joshua Bell. Tuesday, he will be here in his own right. He is on his way to Carnegie Hall, which is why Buffalo was able to scoop him up for a preconcert run-through.
Denk's program should be one to remember. He is tackling Beethoven's "Hammerklavier" sonata, one of the ultimate challenges every pianist dreams of mastering. The first half of the program remained, at press time, a mystery; all we know is that it will be music by Schubert.
Before the concert, get to know Denk on his entertaining blog, www.jeremydenk.net/blog.
If you didn't buy your subscription yet to the Tick series, there is still time, and there is still room. Note that the rules have shifted, allowing for more flexibility: $185 buys you five tickets, to use whichever way you like during the course of the remaining four concerts. Take four friends to any single concert, split a subscription with a friend, do whatever you want. The choice is yours.
