    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.

    The original cast recording for three-time Tony Award nominee Dave Malloy's musical Octet—recorded live during Signature Theatre's world premiere production—is out today digitally and January 17 on CD. Featuring a score for an a cappella chamber choir and an original libretto inspired by internet comment boards, scientific debates, religious texts, and Sufi poetry, Octet explores addiction and nihilism within the messy context of twenty-first century technology. "The most original and topical musical of the year," says the New York Times; "the sublime a cappella chamber opera is a portrait in song of perhaps the greatest David and Goliath struggle of our time."
