    Jeremy Denk is one of America’s foremost pianists – a musician the New York Times hails as someone ‘you want to hear no matter what he performs’. He makes his BBC Proms debut in a recital that puts Beethoven’s final piano sonata at its core.

    It’s a work that blends extrovert passion with a depth that characterises all of the composer’s late works, and is paired here with Bartók’s Piano Sonata, a piece strongly coloured by Hungarian folk melodies and rhythmic attack.

    We mark the centenary of Scriabin’s death with his most famous piano sonata, the ‘Black Mass’ – a disconcerting, phantasmagoric musical journey and a gleeful vision of horror.

    Jeremy Denk returns in Prom 60 to perform Henry Cowell’s iconoclastic Piano Concerto.
