Acclaimed Portuguese fado singer Carminho, whose newest album, Maria, was released in the United States on Nonesuch last month, begins a two-week, seven-city tour of North America at Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall in New York City this Sunday. The tour continues with performances in Boston, Toronto, Montreal, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, culminating at The Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia, outside of Washington, DC. See below for details and tickets, or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

Maria, Carminho's first album to be released in the US, was previously released in Europe, where London's Evening Standard called her voice "strong and sculptural," and London Jazz News called Maria "a beautifully realized, remarkably varied yet uniformly gorgeous album." PopMatters calls it “a testament to the power of fado as well as a stunning examination of her musical prowess.” To pick up a copy, head to iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where orders include an instant download of the complete album; the album can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

 

Maria is Carminho's fifth and most personal album: its title is her given first name, and also a name that goes deep into the Portuguese identity—very traditional, but also quite contemporary, a popular choice among young parents today, just as fado is part of a tradition yet also belongs to today's world. Additionally, Carminho wrote many of the lyrics and songs and she produced the record herself, for the first time. Carminho considers the album a dialogue between herself and two fado singers who blazed a trail for her: Beatriz da Conceição and Teresa Siqueira (her mother).

    Thomas Adès’ Dante—a ballet score in three acts based on Dante Alighieri’s La Divina Commedia—was recorded by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel in concert at Disney Hall for the premiere recording, due April 21 on Nonesuch Records. Dante was first performed at the Royal Opera House as part of Wayne McGregor’s The Dante Project for the Royal Ballet, with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and with designs by visual artist Tacita Dean. “In any new shortlist of great ballet scores by Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Bartók, Ravel, Prokofiev, Britten, and Bernstein, Dante must newly be included for its musical invention alone,” exclaims the Los Angeles Times. “There is not a second in its 88 minutes that doesn’t delight. All of it is unexpected and wanted.” The collectable limited vinyl two-LP edition includes artwork by Dean and photography from the Royal Ballet’s performance.
