    "I Am Love" Film Soundtrack, Featuring Music of John Adams, to Be Released on Nonesuch June 15

    As John Adams continues his participation in The Kennedy Center's Perspectives: John Adams by leading a free performance of his work at The Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage (to be broadcast live online at kennedy-center.org today at 6 PM), Nonesuch Records is pleased to announce the release of the soundtrack to the film I Am Love, featuring Adams's music, on June 15. The album is now available for pre-order in the Nonesuch Store.

    A ten-year labor of love from director Luca Guadagnino and actress Tilda Swinton, I Am Love was directed and produced with Adams's music in mind, leading several of Adams's works to surge with new life as the score to film. Following its UK theatrical release last month, the Times of London gave the film a perfect five stars, exclaiming: "Elegantly paced, exquisitely photographed and blessed with a sublime score by John Adams, the film references both Visconti and Hitchcock, but is a masterpiece in its own right."

    One day after the soundtrack's June 15 release, Adams and Swinton will be in New York City for a red-carpet premiere gala, announcing the June 18 opening of the film in the United States.

    The film's soundtrack features more than an hour of music from a number of works by John Adams: Chairman Dances; movement one from Century Rolls; Lollapalooza; the third and fourth movements from Shaker Loops; the "Desert Chorus" from the opera The Death of Klinghoffer; an excerpt from Fearful Symmetries; and parts two and three from Harmonielehre.

    Composer, singer, and instrumental polymath Ben LaMar Gay's new album, Open Arms to Open Us, is due November 19 on International Anthem / Nonesuch Records. Living up to NPR's claim that "there is no one universe for Ben LaMar Gay, he just sonic booms from one sound to another," he interweaves jazz, blues, ballads, R&B, raga, new music, nursery rhyme, Tropicália, two-step, hip-hop, and beyond in his most colorful and communicable work yet, an expression of his signature omni-genre, "Pan-Americana" brew. You can watch the video for the track "Sometimes I Forget How Summer Looks on You," featuring OHMME, here.

    Jeremy Denk’s Mozart Piano Concertos is now available on Nonesuch Records. Denk is joined by The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra for two Mozart concertos—No. 25 in C Major, K. 503 and No. 20 in D minor, K. 466—bookending the composer’s solo Rondo in A minor, K. 511. "Denk approaches everything with questing intelligence and energy," says the Observer. "His ornaments and cadenzas are full of wit and imagination, his ear for detail incisive and bracing. The excellent Saint Paul players match his variety and range of expression. As ever, Denk’s probing liner notes shed light, making an already engrossing album more than worth the purchase.”
