    Jeremy Denk To Join San Francisco Conservatory of Music Faculty

    Pianist Jeremy Denk will join the faculty of The San Francisco Conservatory of Music (SFCM). Denk, who performed at SFCM's 2016 gala, will lead a piano studio beginning in the 2019–20 academic year, joining other piano department instructors at SFCM including Paul Hersh, Sharon Mann, Corey McVicar, Yoshikazu Nagai, Jon Nakamatsu, and Garrick Ohlsson.

    "Jeremy Denk is the one of the definitive artists, teachers, and minds of his generation," says SFCM President David H. Stull. "His capacity to excel in multiple modes of artistic work is unparalleled and serves as an inspiration to all of us. I am honored to welcome him to SFCM and look forward to his tremendous work with our students."

    Nonesuch releases Denk's new album, c.1300–c.2000, on February 8, 2019. The two-disc album captures a program of works spanning seven centuries that Denk created and performed at venues including Lincoln Center, Wigmore Hall, and Piano aux Jacobins. "The history of so-called classical music felt closer to me now than it did when I first learned about it in college, not just more relevant, but more alive. Wouldn't it be amazing, I wondered, to experience this sweep and arc in one sitting?" For that program, Denk performed twenty-four pieces by composers ranging from Machaut to Ligeti—with Binchois, Gesualdo, Stockhausen, Philip Glass, and many others in the middle.

    The resulting album, c.1300–c.2000, is available to pre-order now from iTunes and the Nonesuch Store, where it includes an instant download of Binchois's Triste Plaisir; it will also stream at Spotify and Apple Music.

    Denk's previous Nonesuch releases include an album of works by Beethoven and Ligeti and a recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations with accompanying video "liner notes."
