News & Reviews

  • The latest issue of BBC Music Magazine is out now, including reviews of three new Nonesuch releases: Steve Reich's Pulse / Quartet ("poignant, intoxicating"), John Adams's Violin Concerto ("expansively beautiful, dazzling"), and Brad Mehldau Trio's Seymour Reads the Constitution! ("the art of the trio"). 

  • The first recording of John Adams's 2005 opera, Doctor Atomic, is due June 29 on Nonesuch. The composer leads the BBC Singers and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, with a cast led by Gerald Finley and Julia Bullock. Longtime Adams collaborator Peter Sellars created the libretto, drawing from original sources. "A magnificent accomplishment," exclaims the Los Angeles Times. "It contains music of unearthly splendor." Pre-order to download the aria "Batter my heart" and the chorus "At the sight of this" now.
