    Listen: Jeremy Denk Talks with NPR's "Weekend Edition" About His New Album, "c. 1300–c. 2000"
    Michael Wilson

    Jeremy Denk was on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday to talk with host Melissa Block about his new double album, c. 1300–c. 2000. The album, released last month on Nonesuch Records, presents a centuries-long story of musical expression through the music of twenty-four different composers.

    "It's kind of an epic poem of human accomplishment and different ways of seeing the world through music," Denk explains. "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?"

    You can hear what else he has to say in the conversation below.

    Jeremy Denk is in the UK this week for concerts at Wigmore Hall in London tonight and next Saturday and at Perth Concert Hall in Scotland on Sunday; for details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour. He performs on BBC Radio 3's Lunchtime Concert today and In Tune on Wednesday.

    To pick up a copy of c.1300–c.2000, head to iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include an instant download of the complete album; it can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Ry Cooder's critically acclaimed album Chávez Ravine, first released on Nonesuch Records in 2005, will make its vinyl debut on September 6. With a cast of legendary Chicano musicians, Cooder recounts the story of how a Mexican-American community was razed to make way for L.A.'s Dodger Stadium. "A remarkable song cycle," said Rolling Stone, "a brilliant and flavorful film-noir history lesson." The two-LP vinyl edition was remastered from the original high-resolution source files and pressed on 140-gram vinyl. The set comes in a gatefold tip-on jacket with a twenty-page, full-color booklet. It is available to pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
