Chronogram congratulations go out to Jeremy Denk, esteemed pianist and faculty of the Bard College Conservatory of Music, who has been named a 2013 MacArthur Fellow.

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation announced Denk as one of the new fellows for 2013. MacArthur Fellowships are awarded to talented individuals in a variety of fields who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative pursuits and a marked capacity for self direction. MacArthur Fellows each receive a $625,000 grant that is bestowed with no conditions—recipients may use the money as they see fit. Nominated anonymously by leaders in their respective fields and never notified of their candidacy, the recipients learn of their selection only when they receive a call from the MacArthur Foundation days before the public announcement. Denk is the 12th Bard faculty member to be honored with a MacArthur Fellowship.

Denk regularly performs as soloist with distinguished orchestras; he frequently gives recitals in New York, Washington, Boston, Philadelphia, and throughout the United States. Last season he made his solo recital debut at the Wigmore Hall and returned to Carnegie Hall in recital. He also toured with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and gave a performance of six of Bach’s keyboard concertos in a single evening with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

In this NPR video, Denk holds forth as he lays down a bit of Ligeti:

“I am thrilled, honored, and a bit overwhelmed to receive the MacArthur Fellowship,” said Denk. “My mind is reeling with ideas how best to use the money and the gifts of time and artistic freedom it represents.”
