    Listen: Jeremy Denk Performs on WNYC's "The Leonard Lopate Show"
    Michael Wilson

    Pianist Jeremy Denk was a guest on The Leonard Lopate Show on New York NPR member station WNYC yesterday. He spoke with Lopate about his latest album, a recording of J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations, which was recently released on Nonesuch Records, and performs from the piece.

    "I think of Bach as this really generous spirit," Denk tells Lopate, "encompassing all of humanity's possibilities in a more perfect way than most humans are able to." Of the Goldbergs, he says: "For me, this piece has an incredible geniality and charm and invention, and then these moments of tremendous pathos."

    You can listen to the complete 20-minute interview and performance here:

    To pick up a copy of Jeremy Denk's recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations, which includes a companion DVD with video “liner notes” of Denk demonstrating passages on the piano as he explains certain details of the iconic piece, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders of the CD/DVD include a download of the album at checkout.

    Denk will join the San Francisco Symphony at Carnegie Hall in New York on November 14 for a performance of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25 in C Major, K. 503. The concert is one of six he will perform with the orchestra this month, including four nights in Davies Hall in San Francisco, starting next Thursday, November 7, and a final concert at the Krannert Center in Champaign-Urbana. He performs the Mozart and Brahms' Piano Quintet in F Minor with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra later in the month. For additional details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
