In honor of the 50th anniversary of Nonesuch Records, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) is presenting Nonesuch Records at BAM: Celebrating a Label Without Labels, a wide-ranging series of concerts, September 9–28. Part of the 2014 Next Wave Festival, these diverse engagements feature 23 evenings of music that underscore the longstanding relationship between Nonesuch artists and BAM. In conjunction with these events, BAMcinématek has announced Nonesuch Records on Film, September 8–25, a salute to the label’s rich catalogue of remarkable movie soundtracks with a series featuring some of the boldest and most memorable film scores of the last 50 years from Leonard Rosenman, Alex North, Toru Takemitsu, Georges Delerue, and more.

Special guest appearances include Philip Glass with a screening of Paul Schrader’s all-but-conventional biopic Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters (1985), for which he wrote the hypnotic score; John Adams with Luca Guadagnino’s I Am Love (2009), a sumptuous soap opera showcasing a tour-de-force performance from Tilda Swinton and a ravishing score by Adams; and Peter Sellars for a free members-only screening of The Cabinet of Dr. Ramirez (1991), his update of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, which is silent but for the pulsating, propulsive music also by John Adams.

Nonesuch Records on Film also includes The Bad Seed (LeRoy, 1956), East of Eden (Kazan, 1955), Harakiri (Kobayashi, 1962), Jules and Jim (Truffaut, 1962), Rebel Without a Cause (Ray, 1955), Shoot the Piano Player (Truffaut, 1960), Spartacus (Kubrick, 1960), Two English Girls (Truffaut, 1971), Woman in the Dunes (Teshigahara, 1964), and more to be announced.
