The Royal Conservatory's Koerner Hall in Toronto has announced its 2014–15 concert season, the organization's sixth anniversary season, which will feature performances from several artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Jeremy Denk, Richard Goode, Gidon Kremer, and Natalie Merchant.

First up among the Nonesuch artists performing at Koerner Hall next season are pianists Denk and Goode, making their Royal Conservatory debuts with Sunday afternoon recitals in November: Jeremy Denk performing works by Janáček, Schubert, Mozart, and Schumann on November 9, 2014, and Richard Goode performing works by Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy, and Schumann on November 16, 2014.

Heading into the New Year, violinist Gidon Kremer makes a return visit to Koerner Hall on Tuesday, January 20, 2015, joined by young Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov for a performance of works by Mozart, Schubert, and Rachmaninov.

Later in the year, Natalie Merchant makes her Koerner Hall debut with two performances in May: an evening of music from her new album, Natalie Merchant, and favorite songs from throughout her storied career on Friday, May 1, 2015, and a special Family Concert on the afternoon of Saturday, May 2, 2015, featuring songs from her Nonesuch Records debut album, Leave Your Sleep, in which she set classic children's poetry to music. The latter helps inaugurate the Royal Conservatory's new Family Concerts series.

Dr. Peter Simon, President of The Royal Conservatory of Music, says of the 2014–15 season: "With this outstanding collection of performances and special events, The Royal Conservatory of Music continues its tradition of excellence in concert presentation established with the opening of Koerner Hall in 2009."

Mervon Mehta, Executive Director of Performing Arts, adds: "Thanks to our loyal audiences we enjoy the freedom to experiment with artists and repertoire. Be brave, experiment, choose a concert outside of your comfort zone—Koerner Hall is yours to explore."

Tickets are on sale now for The Royal Conservatory's 2014–15 Koerner Hall concert season.

    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, with choreography by Wayne McGregor and design by visual artist Tacita Dean, premiered in London in 2021 with the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Ballet. “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.
