    Gabriel Kahane's "Book of Travelers" Now Available on Limited-Edition Orange Vinyl

    Composer, pianist, and singer Gabriel Kahane's 2018 Nonesuch Records debut album, Book of Travelers, is out now available on limited-edition, translucent orange vinyl. To pick up a copy, head to the Nonesuch Store now.

    Book of Travelers comprises a ten-song musical travelogue Kahane wrote after the journey he embarked upon the day after the 2016 Presidential election: a looping, 8,980-mile railway journey through the United States. He left behind his cell phone and other internet-connected devices, spending the next two weeks with dozens of strangers whose stories are woven into the cycle. "[An] articulate, musically far-reaching travelogue," says Uncut. "Exquisitely crafted songs … full of affection for their inhabitants … Musically fascinating and hauntingly empathetic." "Extraordinary," says the San Francisco Chronicle; "vivid and wholly original." Rolling Stone calls it a "stunning portrait of a singular moment in America."

    Gabriel Kahane is currently on tour with the Louisville Orchestra, performing songs from Book of Travelers in Louisville tonight and tomorrow and in New Albany, Indiana, on Saturday. He heads to Europe in February to perform in France, Luxembourg, Germany, Netherlands, Finland, and Denmark. For details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw's second Nonesuch album, Narrow Sea, is out now. Shaw wrote the album's title piece, for Sō Percussion, Dawn Upshaw, and Gilbert Kalish, who perform it here: five parts, each a new setting of a text from The Sacred Harp, the 19th-century collection of shape-note hymns. Video for all five parts of the piece can be seen here. Also on the album is Sō Percussion's performance of Shaw's Taxidermy, which she wrote for the ensemble.
