    Jeremy Denk, Kronos Quartet, Rhiannon Giddens Featured in Washington Performing Arts 2018-19 Season

    Washington Performing Arts has announced its 2018–19 concert season, and among the performers the organization will present at various venues in the Washington, DC, area next season are three Nonesuch artists: Jeremy Denk, Kronos Quartet, and Rhiannon Giddens.

    Pianist Jeremy Denk will be presented twice in the season, first giving a solo recital of works by John Adams, Beethoven, Bizet, Mendelssohn, and Schumann in the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater in Washington, DC, on Tuesday, January 29, 2019. He returns to the area to join violinist Joshua Bell and cellist Steven Isserlis in a performance of trios by Mendelssohn, Shostakovich, Rachmaninoff, and Ravel at The Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda, Maryland, on Wednesday, May 1, 2019.

    Kronos Quartet takes part in year four of its five-year residency with Washington Performing Arts with a concert at Sixth & I Synagogue in Washington, DC, on Saturday, March 2, 2019. The program, titled Music for Change: The Banned Countries, features music from the seven largely Muslim-majority countries originally included on the 2017 Executive Orders limiting travel to the US: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

    Rhiannon Giddens will also perform at Sixth & I, as the special guest of pianist Lara Downes, on Saturday, February 23. The program includes music by Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Meredith Monk, and others.

    Among the other artists performing next season are cellist Yo-Yo Ma and bassist Edgar Meyer, who released the album Bach Trios with Chris Thile on Nonesuch in 2017. Ma performs the complete Bach Suites at the Washington National Cathedral on November 29, 2018, and Meyer joins Zakir Hussain and Béla Fleck in concert at GW Lisner Auditorium on November 10.

Yola's "sonic palette, which spans country, folk, classic soul and '70s-era Britpop; her emotive songwriting, which oscillates between vulnerability and chest-pounding empowerment; and her truly powerful voice," says NPR Music's Brittney McKenna, "abounds on Walk Through Fire, ... [which] showcases Yola's otherworldly vocals and compelling songwriting." McKenna concludes: "It's the work of an artist sure to stun audiences for years to come."

    David Byrne's Nonesuch Records debut album, Grown Backwards, first released on March 16, 2004, will make its vinyl debut almost 15 years later, on March 15, 2019. The double-vinyl edition is the original album plus six additional tracks, including a duet with Caetano Veloso on their song "Dreamworld." It's "one of Byrne's most rewarding experiments yet," said the Guardian. "It fits alongside the best of his career and adds another solid release to a solo catalog which will hopefully become more cherished in time," said Pitchfork in 2004. "In 20 years, as we straighten our faces with botulism, braces, and stem cells, the album will stand up." Pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
