  • Congratulations to all of the Nonesuch Records artists who were nominated for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, announced earlier today by The Recording Academy: Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman, Rhiannon Giddens, Caetano Veloso & Gilberto Gil, and John Adams. Together, these artists' Nonesuch releases have garnered a total of six nominations this year. The Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday, February 12, 2017, in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live on CBS.

  • John Adams will conduct the London Symphony Orchestra in several performances in London and France over the coming week, starting with his Nativity Oratorio, El Niño, at the Barbican in London this Sunday, December 4, and his Scheherazade.2 with violinist Leila Josefowicz there next Thursday. They then head to France to perform Scheherazade.2 at the Opéra de Dijon and the Philharmonie de Paris, and Adams and the LSO perform El Niño, at the Philharmonie.

  • About This Album

    The New York Times praised the “freewheeling violin and piano work” of Adams’s “traveling music.” The Oakland Tribune says the other piano-based pieces collected here “thrillingly exhibit the kinetic rhythmic excitement that always placed Adams above the so-called minimalists.”
