    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of March 22–24

    Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell and their band continue on their North American tour celebrating the release of their new duets album, Old Yellow Moon, released late last month on Nonesuch Records. The tour, which also features co-headliner Richard Thompson with his Electric Trio, began earlier this week and continues into April. This weekend brings the musicians north of the 49th parallel for a performance at Massey Hall in Toronto, followed by a return to the States for shows at Boston's Orpheum Theatre on Saturday and at The Paramount in Huntington, New York, on Sunday. The Northeastern leg continues into next week with stops in Philadelphia and at the Beacon Theater in New York City.

    Harris spoke with the New York Times in advance of the New York-area concert, in a conversation about the collaboration with Crowell and much more. Read the interview at nytimes.com.

    Old Yellow Moon marks the first official collaboration of Harris and Crowell since Crowell joined Harris’ Hot Band in 1975. Uncut calls it "a collaboration at once overdue, and worth the wait." The Chicago Tribune says it's "an album that's smart from top to bottom. Harris and Crowell are hard-wired for good taste and seem constitutionally incapable of making a weak record."

    The staged production of John Adams's new oratorio, The Gospel According to the Other Mary, receives its French premiere at Salle Pleyel in Paris Saturday night in a performance by the Los Angeles Philharmonic led by conductor Gustavo Dudamel. The production was direct by Adams's frequent collaborator Peter Sellars.

    The Times of London gives a perfect five stars to last weekend's European premiere of the piece at the Barbican, lauding the "richness and variety of Adams's masterly score." The Guardian, in its four-star review, concludes that "everything about the performance under Dudamel was vivid and immaculate; musically it was a remarkable occasion."

    The Los Angeles Philharmonic brings The Gospel According to the Other Mary production back to the States next week for its New York premiere at Lincoln Center on Wednesday.

The tour continues with two performances in Virginia: at VCU's Sonia Vlahcevic Concert Hall in Richmond on Sunday and the Lyric Theatre in Blacksburg on Sunday. Denk is featured in the April issue of Vanity Fair, which dubs him a musical "frontiersman."
