  • Brad Mehldau's 10 Years Solo Live, here in a four-CD box set, is culled from live recordings made over a decade of the pianist's European solo concerts and is divided into four thematic subsets of four sides each: Dark/Light, The Concert, Intermezzo/Rückblick, and E Minor/E Major. "It is not enough to say that the different audiences were important for the creation of this music," says Mehldau. "They were absolutely necessary; they were pivotal. Without those audiences, this music would not exist in the way it does." Pre-orders include an instant download of "Waltz for J. B."

  • This seven-disc box set contains all Nonesuch recordings of Polish composer Henryk Górecki's works—Lerchenmusik, Symphony No. 3, String Quartets Nos. 1–3, Miserere, Kleines Requiem für eine Polka, Harpsichord Concerto, and Good Night—as well as the newly released first recording of Górecki's final composition, Symphony No. 4, Tansman Episodes, which was completed by Górecki’s son Mikolaj after his father's death. "A commanding, haunting farewell … a conscious summing-up," says the New Yorker of the final piece; "the ailing composer may have sensed that it would be his valediction."

  • This first recording of Henryk Górecki’s final composition, Symphony No. 4, Tansman Episodes, was made during its 2014 world premiere at Royal Festival Hall with the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Andrey Boreyko. The piece, which pays homage to composer Alexsander Tansman, was incomplete at the time of Górecki's death. However the score had precise indications for orchestration, which Górecki’s son Mikolaj, also a composer, used to complete it. "This swansong turned out to be extraordinary: playful, dramatic and tender," says the Boston Globe, "an ambitious, hypnotic work … a meditation on the many styles he adopted and developed during a long and successful career."

  • This is the first vinyl LP of the beloved 1992 Nonesuch recording of Górecki’s Symphony No. 3, Symphony of Sorrowful Songs. Featuring the London Sinfonetta and soprano Dawn Upshaw, this recording of the Polish composer's 1976 work proved spellbinding to a diverse international audience. The LP, pressed on 180-gram vinyl, includes a download of the complete album. TIME calls it "a transcendental meditation on mortality and redemption."

  • St Germain (aka Ludovic Navarre), whose albums Boulevard (1995) and Tourist (2000) originated a genre of French electronic music that later included artists like Air, has returned to the studio to create his first album in 15 years, and it's "well worth the wait," says the Independent. The self-titled record marries percussive grooves, which have always been central to St Germain’s sound, with a new element: traditional Malian music. Pre-orders of the album include an instant download of the opening track, "Real Blues."

  • Lianne La Havas's album Blood was inspired by her Jamaican and Greek family heritage and by Jamaica's love of grooves, rhythms, and syncopation. "The album demands, and rewards, all the attention you can give it," raves Rolling Stone. It's "a seductive blend of poetic lyricism, sultry vocals, and strong yet understated musicianship," says the Daily Beast. "La Havas is a powerhouse with a full heart," says NPR, "creating music that's sweeping, inspiring and downright fun."
