    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of December 4–6
    Wonge Bergmann

    Steve Reich will be the special guest of the Amadinda Percussion Group in a concert celebrating the Hungarian ensemble's 25th anniversary, at Béla Bartók National Concert Hall in Budapest's Palace of Arts this Sunday. It will be an all-Reich program, featuring the world premiere of the new Mallet Quartet, as well as Daniel Variations and the seminal Music for 18 Musicians. Amadinda's Zoltan Racz described that last piece to the Hungarian News Agency as "a miracle itself, the way the whole piece is alive breathing can only be compared to the greatest  miracles of nature. A masterpiece with incomparable depths." The composer arrived in Budapest last night to help the performers prepare for the event.

    As reported earlier this week in the Nonesuch Journal, West Coast, Left Coast, the Los Angeles Philharmonic's John Adams–curated festival celebrating the music of California, is in full swing, with Adams and Kronos Quartet already having shared the Walt Disney Concert Hall stage twice this week. They do so again tonight for an encore performance with the Philharmonic of last night's program, which featured the world premiere of It Got Dark, a new piece by Thomas Newman.

    Adams will be on stage every day this weekend, following tonight's concert with concerts Saturday and Sunday in which he leads the LA Phil and violinist Leila Josefowicz in his piece The Dharma at Big Sur. Also on the program are Leonard Rosenman's Suite from Rebel Without a Cause and works by Kraft and Dresher.
     
    In a distinctly different West Cost, Left Coast event on Sunday, Brian Wilson will perform his quintessentially California songs on the Disney stage. Also on the bill are roots-rocker Dave Alvin, The Living Sisters, and singer-songwriter Harper Simon.

    The festival concludes on Tuesday, when Joshua Redman joins a number of performers for A Night of the Beats, celebrating the poetry of the Beats and bebop jazz.

    Christina Courtin joins Ryan Scott, a co-producer of and performer on her self-titled Nonesuch debut album, at Brooklyn's BAMcafé tonight, as part of the venue's BAMcafé Live series of free Friday night shows. She'll be performing her own set at Pete's Candy Store, also in Brooklyn, in a late set tomorrow night at 11 PM.

    The Bay Area Reporter's Jason Victor Serinus recently described Christina's self-titled Nonesuch debut as "striking," saying it "introduces an enigmatic, deep-thinking artist who first disarms you, then ropes you in." He goes on to say that, on the album, "it's the voice, and Courtin's deceptively simple, amazingly deep songwriting that command attention. ... You will not forget this album."

    Richard Goode joins The Cleveland Orchestra and conductor Iván Fischer tonight and tomorrow night at Cleveland's Severence Hall for performances featuring Beethove's Piano Concerto No. 3. It's a reunion of sorts for the pianist and conductor, as the concerto was one of the complete Beethoven set peformed by Goode, Fischer, and the Budapest Festival Orchestra on a Nonesuch recording released earlier this year described as a "landmark recording of the Beethoven concertos" by the Financial Times.

    Devendra Banhart will perform four ticketed, live-streaming concerts on Wednesdays this September, from four locations across Los Angeles, in a series titled OLA: Devendra Banhart plays songs in the order they were written. Banhart hand-picked the locations for their cultural, historical, and emotional significance: the Mountain, Bob Baker Marionette Theater, The Broad, and the Underground Museum. The concerts explore—in chronological order—songs from his catalog of ten albums. Moses Berkson directs the series; each show will feature one of Banhart’s frequent musical collaborators—including Noah Georgeson, Josiah Steinbrick, Gregory Rogove and Todd Dahlhoff—on a selection of songs.

    Lianne La Havas will play a one-off solo live show at London's Roundhouse on Wednesday, July 15, which will include new songs from her forthcoming, self-titled album and throughout her catalog. This very special, multi-camera, one-night-only performance will be broadcast via YouTube; tickets go on sale this Friday. La Havas will donate her proceeds to Black Lives Matter–related organizations. She has just released a cover of Radiohead's "Weird Fishes," the latest single from the new album, due July 17. The new track is "glorious," says Uncut; Mojo calls it "a show-stopper."
