I'm interested in your opinions of this program. I usually don't like programs with more than 5-6 composers and also find programs in historical order slightly dull, but this one pushes those ideas to an extreme, and I might have enjoyed this a lot.

Denk wrote a little essay with some interesting things to say (as is his wont) to go along with this program.

When an amateur with modest ability and little experience criticizes a world class pianist without any specifics, I'd call it trolling.

I like the concept. I like concerts where I enjoy listening, but also my understanding is increased.

Any non-standard performance needs to be done well though, otherwise people won't understand what you are trying to do. From the review, it sounds like he did a good job, and people enjoyed the performance.

If you read JoelW's previous posts and replies, then you can figure out that he is trying too hard to troll to garner some form of attention.
Just ignore him and block his posts.
