    Louis Andriessen's stagework Theatre of the World—recorded live during the Los Angeles Philharmonic's 2016 world premiere performances with conductor Reinbert de Leeuw and director Pierre Audi—is out now on Nonesuch Records. The Los Angeles Times says: "Brilliant and deep, Andriessen's music compels from start to finish." "There are no limits to where Louis Andriessen’s imagination will take him," says the Financial Times; "a wild mix of opera, jazz, modernism and minimalism, all captured vividly in this live recording."

    Richard Goode's Beethoven: The Complete Sonatas, first released on Nonesuch in 1993 and nominated for a Grammy Award, is available once again on CD, now at a new, lower price. The 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." The Guardian calls it "superb." Gramophone says it's "one of the finest interpretations ever put on record."
