    Jeremy Denk was on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday to discuss his new album, c. 1300–c. 2000. "It's kind of an epic poem of human accomplishment and different ways of seeing the world through music," he says. "So as the centuries unfold, there's periods of impasse, you know, where how do you go on after Beethoven or how do you go on after Bach? What do you do next? How do you start fresh but still build on the past?" Denk performs at Wigmore Hall in London tonight and Saturday and can be heard on BBC Radio 3's Lunchtime Concert today and In Tune on Wednesday.

    Jeremy Denk's new album, c.1300–c.2000, is out now. The double 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. "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." "Full of contrast and surprise," says the Observer, "this is a richly personal gallery of sound."

About Jeremy Denk

  • Jeremy Denk has appeared as soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the symphony orchestras of Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and London. He regularly gives recitals in New York, Washington, Boston, Philadelphia, and throughout the United States. His 2012-13 season includes a return to Carnegie Hall in recital, as part of a 13-city tour of the US, as well as a performance of Bach’s complete set of six keyboard concertos in a single evening with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. 

    Denk is known for his original and insightful writing on music, praised by Alex Ross for its “arresting sensitivity and wit.” Denk’s writing has appeared in The New Yorker, New Republic, and on the front page of the New York Times Book Review. His website think denk, recounting his experiences of touring, performing, and practicing, was recently selected for inclusion in the Library of Congress Web Archives. Denk looks forward to performing and curating as music director of the 2014 Ojai Music Festival, for which he is also composing the libretto to a semi-satirical opera.

    In 2012, Denk made his debut as a Nonesuch Records artist with a pairing of masterpieces old and new: Beethoven’s final piano sonata and selected György Ligeti Etudes. The disc was named one of the best discs of 2012 by The New Yorker, NPR, and the Washington Post. In 2013, Denk releases a recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. He has cultivated relationships with many living composers, and has several commissioning projects currently in progress.

    Denk has toured frequently with violinist Joshua Bell. He also regularly collaborates with cellist Steven Isserlis. He has appeared at numerous festivals, including the Italian and American Spoleto Festivals, and the Santa Fe Chamber Music, Verbier, Ravinia, Tanglewood, Aspen, and “Mostly Mozart” Festivals.
