News & Reviews

  • The Guardian has published a number of lists of the Best Culture of the 21st Century (So Far). Several Nonesuch artists and recordings have made the lists, including works by Rokia Traoré, John Adams, Steve Reich, Louis Andriessen, and more. Also on the lists are films for which Nonesuch released soundtracks by Jonny Greenwood, Clint Mansell, and more.

  • Congratulations to composer John Adams, whose Doctor Atomic has won the Opus Klassik Award for Best Opera Recording – 20th/21st Century. On this first recording of the piece, the composer leads the BBC Singers and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, with a cast led by Gerald Finley and Julia Bullock. Peter Sellars created the libretto, drawing from original sources to explore the final hours leading up to the first atomic bomb explosion in 1945. The Opus Klassik awards ceremony will take place in Berlin on October 13.

    The CD of this album is available to purchase at ArkivMusic.

    These pieces, says the New York Times, “insist that symphonic music can be slyly fun.” Chamber Symphony was influenced both by Schoenberg and children’s cartoons. Grand Pianola Music “pokes fun,” says the Times, “at the heroics of Romantic concerto writing.”
