    Polish composer Henryk Górecki's Symphony No. 3, Symphony of Sorrowful Songs, was released on Nonesuch Records 25 years ago today, April 24, 1992. Górecki had composed the piece in 1976, but it didn't appear on disc until then. The recording of the emotionally affecting piece, featuring soprano Dawn Upshaw and the London Sinfonietta led by conductor David Zinman, proved spellbinding to a diverse international audience, becoming the highest-selling album ever by a contemporary composer. "Perhaps people find something they need in this piece of music," Górecki speculated. "Somehow I hit the right note, something they were missing."

    Devendra Banhart, whose new album, Ape in Pink Marble, was released in the fall, recently took director Barbara Anastacio on a tour of his home in Los Angeles for the Nowness series My Place. "I haven't figured out how to make it a place that feels inviting and cozy, I think, to have even people over," Banhart says of his home. "Even though my idea of a good party, no one's home. I mean, I'm not even there. Like, if I'm not here, and there's no one here, it's a pretty good party." You can watch it here.
