    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.

    Brad Mehldau's new album, Suite: April 2020, is now available on CD and standard vinyl, following the release of the digital and limited-edition deluxe vinyl editions earlier this year. While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, along with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him. One thousand numbered and signed copies of the deluxe edition were sold, with a minimum of $90 from each sale donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund. Brad Mehldau has several solo concerts in Europe ahead.
