New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Jeremy Denk led the third and final event of Bach's Well-Tempered Lens, his online series for WNYC/WQXR's The Greene Space in New York City, with "How to Think Like Bach." From his barn in upstate New York, Denk performed pieces by Bach and led a distanced discussion about what happens to our brains when we listen to the composer's work, joined by neuroscientist Daniel Levitin, music therapist Concetta Tomaino, and longtime recital partner cellist Steven Isserlis for performance and conversation. You can watch it here:

The series began with "The Well-Tempered Clavier's Greatest Hits" and continued with "The Mysterious Life of J.S. Bach" (with Timo Andres), both in April.
"Listening to Jeremy Denk play Bach," says Jennifer Sendrwo, the Greene Space Executive Producer, "is a powerful antidote to life's chaos, bringing people together to revel in music that transcends time and continues to inspire joy and provoke our curiosity."

Jeremy Denk recorded Bach's Goldberg Variations for an album released on Nonesuch Records in 2013, and performed Bach's Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 903, on his 2019 album, c. 1300-c. 2000. He can be heard performing John Adams's "I Still Play (Pocket Variations)" on the upcoming I Still Play, an album of solo piano compositions by artists who have recorded for Nonesuch, written in honor of the label's longtime President Bob Hurwitz.
