    Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau Tour Europe
    Michael Wilson

    Mandolinist/singer Chris Thile and pianist Brad Mehldau begin a nine-city European tour, performing songs from their 2017 debut duo album, Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau, at Teatro dal Verme in Milan, Italy, tonight. The duo stays in Italy for a performance at Teatro Zancanaro in Sacile on Thursday, before heading to Amsterdam, London, Paris, Munich, Leverkusen (Germany), and Zürich. The tour concludes with a concert at Wiener Konzerthaus in Vienna on November 18.

    See below for all of the currently scheduled duo dates or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour, which also includes the new season of A Prairie Home Companion hosted by Thile.

    Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau was released on Nonesuch Records in January. The artists "come from different worlds but the same species," says the New York Times. "Mr. Thile is a progressive-bluegrass pacesetter; Mr. Mehldau is the most influential jazz pianist of the last 20 years. Both are team players." The Guardian exclaims: "Two very different musicians hit a remarkable rapport on this double album."

    Forbes Magazine, reviewing a recent show in Los Angeles, writes, “Merging their styles into a world somewhere between jazz and country, the pair of Mehldau and Thile delivered a night that was unique, musically literate and intelligent while still being an absolute blast.”

    In honor of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch puppeteer Caroll Spinney's retirement from Sesame Street after nearly 50 years, we revisit Kronos Quartet's trip to that beloved street in 1987 to talk with Big Bird about the string quartet and making music. "His open and kind-hearted view of the world and how we should treat each other is something we should forever aspire to," Kronos says of Spinney, and we concur.
