Composer-performer Daniel Wohl, whose album État was released on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records last year, begins a European tour as the special guest of A Winged Victory for the Sullen at De Duif in Amsterdam tonight. The fourteen-concert tour continues in Germany, Belgium, Ireland, and the UK, including shows at Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Round Chapel in London, and Dublin's National Concert Hall. See below for details and tickets or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

État, featuring electro-acoustic pieces written by Wohl, was recorded with members of yMusic and the Calder Quartet and includes guest performances by Poliça's Channy Leaneagh with co-production by Son Lux's Ryan Lott and mmph. "This is a really beautiful record; love the textures kind of underpinning this one," says NPR's Robin Hilton. His colleague Tom Huizenga concurs: "It's beautiful. I think he's really one of the most imaginative electroacoustic composer-musicians working today." As does NPR's Stephen Thompson, who adds: "These pieces really breathe in such a fascinating way. It's a really easy record to just get completely carried away by."

To pick up a copy of État, head to iTunes, Bandcamp, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include an instant download of the complete album. It can also be heard on Spotify, Apple Music, and other digital service providers.

    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.
