    Richard Goode's Acclaimed Complete Beethoven Sonatas Recording Returns in 10-CD Set

    Acclaimed pianist Richard Goode's recording of Beethoven: The Complete Sonatas, originally released on Nonesuch Records in 1993 and nominated for a Grammy Award, is now available once again on compact disc, and at a new, lower price. The ten-CD box set includes ten individual CD sleeves and a forty-page booklet with the original liner note by the late musicologist Michael Steinberg.

    "An outstanding set," exclaims the New York Times. "It is hard to think of any other artist at once technically, temperamentally and intellectually as suited to the challenges of these sonatas." These "are performances to which one can return without fear of finding them stale," wrote the Guardian. "They lack mannerisms and any sense of a performing ego trying to insinuate itself between the music and listener—the same selfless gift that his teacher Rudolf Serkin exemplified. Superb." Gramophone calls it "one of the finest interpretations ever put on record."

    To pick up a copy of Richard Goode's ten-CD set of the complete Beethoven sonatas, head to the Nonesuch Store, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your favorite purveyor of fine music. The collection is also available digitally at a new low price on iTunes and Amazon and can be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

    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.

    Jeremy Denk's new album, c.1300–c.2000, is out now. The double album presents a centuries-long story of constantly emerging possibilities and styles of musical expression, an evolution drawn in a single arc by the music of twenty-four different composers, from Guillaume de Machaut to György Ligeti. "A piano recital covering 700 years of music: by most accepted definitions, that ought to be not just an oxymoron but an impossibility," says the Telegraph. "But the usual barriers fall whenever Jeremy Denk is at the keyboard ... Quite exhilarating." "Full of contrast and surprise," says the Observer, "this is a richly personal gallery of sound."
