    Watch: Brad Mehldau Performs "After Bach" Program at Philharmonie de Paris

    Brad Mehldau brought his Three Pieces After Bach program to the Philharmonie de Paris in April. As with his album, After Bach, released on Nonesuch in March, the solo program pairs pieces from J.S. Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier with Mehldau's own works inspired by Bach. The concert was broadcast live from the beautiful Jean Nouvel–designed hall and can be watched again in its entirety below via the European culture TV channel ARTE.

    "Brad Mehldau is one of the most influential jazzmen of the last twenty years," says the Philharmonie. "For this exceptional program, he departs from Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier to develop his own compositions ... This offering by Mehldau is unlike any other."

    To pick up a copy of After Bach, head to iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout. You can also listen to After Bach on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Brad Mehldau returns to the Philharmonie de Paris on September 1 for a performance of his new piano concerto with l'Orchestre national d'Ile-de-France. For details and tickets to this and other upcoming Mehldau tour dates, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    'Tis the season to be jolly with holiday songs! To add our merry to the mix, we've created Nonesuch for the Holidays, a playlist of holiday tunes both classic and soon-to-be-so from The Staves, Chris Thile, Emmylou Harris, Kate & Anna McGarrigle with family and friends, Boston Camerata with eight centuries of Christmas music from Medieval to Renaissance to Baroque, and, of course, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker, performed by the New York City Ballet Orchestra—plus, on Spotify, an exclusive from Rostam.

    Chris Thile was joined by fellow Punch Brothers Chris Eldridge and Noam Pikelny as they sat in with the band on his radio show Live From Here at The Town Hall in NYC on Saturday. For a post-broadcast encore, they performed "My Oh My," from Punch Brothers' album The Phosphorescent Blues, with guest Jon Batiste. You can watch it here. Also on the show were St. Vincent (with Thomas Bartlett on piano) and Sara Watkins.
