    Listen: Jeremy Denk Performs Brahms Piece from Forthcoming Album, "c. 1300–c. 2000"

    A new track from pianist Jeremy Denk's forthcoming album, c. 1300–c. 2000, has been released: Brahms's Intermezzo in B Minor from Klavierstücke, Op. 119, No. 1. The piece can be heard below via YouTube and on Spotify and Apple Music, and is available to download now with pre-orders of c. 1300–c. 2000 on iTunes and in the Nonesuch Store, along with the previously released track, Binchois's Triste Plaisir.

    The new 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 is c.1300–c.2000.

    "A piano recital covering 700 years of music: by most accepted definitions, that ought to be not just an oxymoron but an impossibility," says the Telegraph. "But the usual barriers fall whenever Jeremy Denk is at the keyboard ... Quite exhilarating."
