    Pianist Jeremy Denk begins a ten-date tour with violinist Joshua Bell and cellist Steven Isserlis at Charleston Gaillard Center in Charleston, South Carolina, on Saturday, and Symphony Hall in Boston on Sunday. The program includes works by Mendelssohn, Shostakovich, Rachmaninoff, and Ravel.

    “I do think people want concerts to be kind of a happening,” Denk tells the Post and Courier ahead of Saturday’s show. “How do you make it feel like it was written yesterday? I have a natural sense of this music being very fresh. It feels to me very alive.”

    Denk’s new album, c. 1300–c. 2000, is out now on Nonesuch Records. “A thoughtfully curated, beautifully played, brilliantly annotated recital,” raves BBC Radio 3’s Record Review. The Sunday Times calls it “thrilling and deft.”

    Gabriel Kahane concludes his European Book of Travelers tour with a free performance at Les Ateliers de Bitche in Nantes, France, tonight, as part of Festival Variations.

    Moreno is the guest on the latest episode of The Bluegrass Situation’s The Show on the Road podcast. “She has had a gift from a very young age, with a voice that is both light as a summer breeze and sharp as a knife in a lovers quarrel,” says host Z. Lupetin. You can hear the conversation here.

    The Joshua Redman Quartet—Hutchinson, Rodgers, and pianist Aaron Goldberg—released its first album in nearly two decades, Come What May, on Nonesuch last month. The Times of London gives it four stars, noting that “nothing beats the cool confidence of a band who have spent years on the road. It also helps that the seven Redman tunes here are so good ... Four men playing as one.”
