    Listen: Jeremy Denk's New Album, "c. 1300-c. 2000," Streaming in Full as NPR First Listen

    Pianist Jeremy Denk's new album, c. 1300–c. 2000, is out next Friday, February 8, 2019, but you don't need to wait till then to hear it: the album is streaming in full all week as an NPR First Listen at npr.org/firstlisten.

    The new 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.

    "Life, of course, runs in cycles," NPR's Tom Huizenga concludes in his First Listen review, "and Denk's c.1300–c.2000 lets us know that music—with its special powers of creation, expiration and restoration—does, too."

    Read the review and listen to the album now at npr.org/firstlisten.

    c. 1300–c. 2000 is available to pre-order on iTunes and the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of two album tracks: Binchois's Triste Plaisir and Brahms's Intermezzo in B Minor from Klavierstücke, Op. 119, No. 1.
