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.

  • Steve Reich was on New Sounds on Friday to discuss his new piece, Reich/Richter. The piece premiered as part of Reich Richter Pärt, a live performance-exhibition pairing works by Gerhard Richter with the new Reich piece and extant work by Arvo Pärt, at The Shed in NYC on Saturday; performances continue there through June 2. You can hear the episode, which also includes "Valencia," from Caroline Shaw's forthcoming album, Orange, performed by Attacca Quartet, here.

  • About This Album

    These groundbreaking pieces from the mid-‘60s / early ‘70s, which utilize tape loops and Reich’s pioneering “phasing” technique, not only inspired the minimalist movement but also influenced generations of sound-sampling pop and electronic artists. The Washington Post calls them “absolutely spellbinding.”
