Program Notes: 

Two of America’s most thought-provoking, multi-faceted and compelling classical chamber artists, award-winning pianist Jeremy Denk and violinist Stefan Jackiw, join together to perform Charles Ives’ complete sonatas for violin and piano. They combine forces with a quartet of UMD School of Music alumni singers who perform the various hymns and songs from which Ives drew inspiration for his sonatas.

MacArthur “Genius” Grant winner Denk frequently tours internationally, and often appears as a guest soloist with the foremost U.S.orchestras. Recognized as one of his generation’s most captivating violin artists, Jackiw has appeared as soloist with the Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco symphony orchestras, among others.


“Anyone can make difficult music sound difficult. Jackiw and Denk put the difficulties in the background and made these tough scores flow like jazz improvisations.” – Portland Press-Herald
