    Watch: Jeremy Denk Featured on WNET's "NYC-ARTS"—"One of Today's Most Compelling Artists"

    Congratulations to pianist Jeremy Denk, whose first album with Nonesuch Records, Ligeti/Beethoven, has debuted this week at #9 on Billboard's Traditional Classical chart. Denk is featured on the latest edition of New York public television station WNET THIRTEEN's NYC-ARTS, hosted by Philippe de Montebello and Paula Zahn. He talks to the show about his career in music, his writing, and the impetus behind Ligeti/Beethoven, performing pieces from the new album, which pairs Ligeti’s Piano Études, Books One and Two, with Beethoven’s Sonata No. 32 in C Minor, Op. 111. You can watch Denk's NYC-ARTS profile below.

    This week's episode also takes a look the work of Claude Monet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. "Two creative spirits from very different times and places with their own unique means of expression, whether impressionistic or abstract," says Zahn of the show's two subjects, "they challenge the way we hear and see the world around us."

    Denk has "steadily built a reputation as one of today's most compelling artists," Zahn goes on to say of the pianist. "Over the years he has become known for his highly thoughtful interpretations of music and the generosity of his playing ... He is a man of prodigious talent, with a wide-ranging intellectual curiosity."
