    Nonesuch Events for the Long Weekend of January 17–20

    Mountain Man, in association with Duke Performances, brings its fully sold-out Cosmic Prom to The Fruit in Durham, North Carolina, this weekend. In collaboration with visual artist Nathaniel Russell, the trio has created three distinct experiences for it: Beneath the Stars, Under the Canopy, and Below the Sea. The venue transforms each night into a unique and immersive environment in which audiences and Mountain Man will embrace spontaneity, imagination, and wonder. The band explores its collective catalog, joined by special guests.

    John Adams conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic in performances of his 1998 piece Naive and Sentimental Music at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Also on the program, Bang on a Can joins in for the world premiere of Julia Wolfe's new piece, Flower Power.

    Nonesuch Records released the first recording of Naive and Sentimental Music, performed by the LA Phil and conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen, in 2002. The Los Angeles Times calls it “Adams’s most ambitious orchestral score," and the San Francisco Chronicle included it among the best orchestral compositions of the past 50 years.

    Laurie Anderson gives the Canadian premiere of The Art of Falling—solo works and collaborations with her long time musical partner, cellist Rubin Kodheli—at the Royal Conservatory of Music's Koerner Hall in Toronto on Saturday, as part of the 21C Music Festival. "The Art of Falling is an extended improvisation for viola, cello, and electronics," Anderson says. "Hypnotic stories, politics, and dreams weave in and out of the music."

    Across the Atlantic Ocean, a group of amateur artists takes part in the first of six workshops at Philharmonie de Paris to create new work in the style of The Art of Falling. The program includes group practice sessions supervised by professional musicians and a culminating concert on at the Philharmonie on March 21.

    Jeremy Denk and violinist Stefan Jackiw perform Ives Violin Sonatas at Duke University's Baldwin Auditorium in Durham tonight, presented by Duke Performances. Each sonata on the program is paired with a vocal performance of the hymn tunes and song foundations of Ives’ sonatas, sung by the vocal quartet New York Polyphony.

    Denk's latest album, c. 1300–c. 2000, presents a centuries-long story of musical expression in the music of twenty-four different composers, from Guillaume de Machaut to György Ligeti, which the Telegraph calls "exhilarating."

    Rhiannon Giddens and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi play two shows at the Torino Folk Club tonight and Saturday in Turrisi's hometown of Turin, Italy, tonight.

"This is acoustic roots music at its most glorious," exclaims Uncut, "and Giddens is fast becoming the genre’s brightest star in the firmament."
