    Listen: Jeremy Denk's New Album, "c. 1300-c. 2000," Streaming in Full as NPR First Listen

    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 Nonesuch 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.

    David Byrne's Nonesuch Records debut album, Grown Backwards, first released on March 16, 2004, will make its vinyl debut almost 15 years later, on March 15, 2019. The double-vinyl edition is the original album plus six additional tracks, including a duet with Caetano Veloso on their song "Dreamworld." It's "one of Byrne's most rewarding experiments yet," said the Guardian. "It fits alongside the best of his career and adds another solid release to a solo catalog which will hopefully become more cherished in time," said Pitchfork in 2004. "In 20 years, as we straighten our faces with botulism, braces, and stem cells, the album will stand up." Pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
