    Composer John Adams’s The Wound-Dresser is performed by the New York Philharmonic, led by Jaap van Zweden and featuring baritone Matthias Goerne, at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall on Saturday. The piece, written for baritone voice and orchestra, and employing Walt Whitman’s poetry, was originally released on Nonesuch in 1989. The New York Times called it “a triumphant, near-perfectly proportioned work of art.”

    Adams has curated a Lincoln Center Nightcap event at Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse for later that night, featuring composer/pianist Timo Andres and Attacca Quartet. Andres’s latest Nonesuch album, 2013’s Home Stretch, was lauded in the New Yorker for having “an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams.” Attacca Quartet performs on composer Caroline Shaw’s forthcoming album, Orange, out next month on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records.

    Jeremy Denk returns to Wigmore Hall in London on Saturday, joined by Joshua Bell on violin, Timothy Ridout on viola, and Steven Isserlis on cello, for a program of works by Schumann and Fauré. The following afternoon, Denk heads to Scotland for a solo recital, featuring works by Beethoven, John Adams, Bizet, Mendelssohn, and Schumann, at Perth Concert Hall.

    Denk could be heard performing a BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert and on In Tune earlier this week. He also spoke with NPR’s Weekend Edition about his new double album, c. 1300–c. 2000. “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?” You can hear what else he has to say at npr.org.

    Kronos Quartet live-scores screenings of filmmaker Sam Green’s A Thousand Thoughts: A Live Documentary at OZ Arts in Nashville tonight and Saturday.

    “The greatest piece has never been written yet,” Kronos’s David Harrington tells Nashville Public Radio. “And the job of every musician in the world is to try to make music that reaches further and further into our imaginations and our beings.” You can hear what else he had to say at nashvillepublicradio.org.
