Overview

Video: 3 Minutes with Jeremy Denk, Music Director of Ojai North Musical Festival

Ojai North Music Festival
Jeremy Denk, music director


From the keen artistic mind of pianist, writer, and 2013 MacArthur Fellow, Jeremy Denk comes a festival of new and re-contextualized works in a far-reaching and inventive set of programs. For the Berkeley installment of the 2014 Ojai Music Festival, Denk curates concerts that dissolve the boundaries between old music and new, art and folk music, with an eclectic range of virtuoso performers, innovative composers, and master interpreters who are relentlessly re-inventing their musical traditions.

The festival centerpiece will be the Bay Area premiere of a new comic opera, The Classical Style: An Opera (of Sorts) by Steven Stucky to a libretto by Jeremy Denk, and conducted by Robert Spano. Based on Charles Rosen's iconic music history book of the same name, Denk describes the work as "a love letter to Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven, and a satire of classical pomp."

Explore how musical stories unfold through text and sound, from an evening of music by Weill, Mozart, Stockhausen, and Feldman; to pianist Uri Cain's Mahler Reimagined featuring a Jewish cantor embedded in a jazz ensemble. Other festival performers include the Brooklyn-based orchestral collective The Knights, and of course Denk himself, performing his acclaimed interpretations of Ligeti, Janáček, and Beethoven.
