The pianist Jeremy Denk has canceled his Sunday recital at the Rockport Chamber Music Festival because of the death of his father on Saturday. A spokesperson said that the festival is hoping to reschedule the concert later in the summer. Denk, who won a MacArthur Fellowship in September, was to have played Bach’s “Goldberg” Variations and Ives’s “Concord” Sonata at Rockport. He is scheduled to play the same program at Tanglewood’s Ozawa Hall on Aug. 13.
