New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Pianist Jeremy Denk's new album, c. 1300-c. 2000, is out next Friday, February 8, 2019, but you don't need to wait till then to hear it: the album is streaming in full all week as an NPR First Listen at npr.org/firstlisten.
The new album presents a centuries-long story of constantly emerging possibilities and styles of musical expression, an evolution drawn in a single arc by the music of twenty-four different composers, from Guillaume de Machaut to György Ligeti.
"Life, of course, runs in cycles," NPR's Tom Huizenga concludes in his First Listen review, "and Denk's c.1300-c.2000 lets us know that music—with its special powers of creation, expiration and restoration—does, too."
Read the review and listen to the album now at npr.org/firstlisten.
c. 1300-c. 2000 is available to pre-order on iTunes and the Top40-Charts Store with an instant download of two album tracks: Binchois's Triste Plaisir and Brahms's Intermezzo in B Minor from Klavierstücke, Op. 119, No. 1.
