This photo of Jeremy Denk "performing" Beethoven's 2nd Piano Concerto was taken by Hiroyuki Ito and appeared in the NY Times today. I've been asked by more than one person what I find so objectionable about Denk's performances. Consider this photo a visual aid. To top it off, from the reviewer's account it appears he's making a a habit out of saying he'll perform one thing only to show up unprepared and ends up playing something else. Fie!
