Chris Thile, who is currently on tour in Europe, is the guest on the latest episode of the Premier Guitar podcast Wong Notes, hosted by guitarist Cory Wong. “You want to talk about amazing live musicians: the guest on today’s show, Chris Thile,” Wong says. “Oh my gosh, this dude is insane. One of my absolute favorite musicians of all time. One of my favorite musicians to ever play with. One of my favorite thinkers, creative minds. This guy is incredible.”

Wong has played with Thile several times, including as part of the band Vulfpeck and on Thile’s former public radio show Live From Here. In their conversation, they discuss the rewards of collaboration. “Sometimes one plus one equals three,” Thile says, “where you both are just leave the table feeling like I'm more now and I'm more when I go to the table with other people who aren't this person. So, I gotta make sure that I get back to the table with that person often.

You can hear their conversation here:

Thile’s solo tour, featuring music from his 2021 album, Laysongs, and more, takes him to France and Luxembourg this weekend, followed by shows in Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, and Norway before heading to the UK and Ireland in November for six shows with special guest Sam Amidon.

    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.
