    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of February 22–24
    Michael Wilson

    Pianist/composer Brad Mehldau begins a seven-city tour of Europe with tenor Ian Bostridge at Schloss Elmau in Elmau, Germany, on Sunday morning. The duo gives a preview of Mehldau’s new song cycle, The Folly of Desire—featuring lyrics from the poetry of Shakespeare, e.e. cummings, Brecht, Yeats, Goethe, Blake, and more—followed by the official world premiere at Philharmonie de Paris on Monday night. The concerts, which also include Robert Schumann's Dictherliebe, continue in Barcelona, Hamburg, London, Luxembourg, and Berlin.

    All About Jazz says Mehldau has “emerged as a player with a stunning virtuosity and daring ability to mine far reaches of improvisation.” Time Magazine says: “Mehldau achieves an almost spiritual resonance, chords echoing like amens.” He released a solo album, After Bach, and a two-time Grammy-nominated Trio album, Seymour Reads The Constitution!, on Nonesuch last year.

    Composer John Adams’s Doctor Atomic Symphony is performed by the Oregon Symphony, led by James Feddeck, at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland on Saturday and Sunday. The program also includes works by Rachmaninoff and Richard Strauss.

    Nonesuch released the first recording of Doctor Atomic Symphony, performed by Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra and conductor David Robertson, in 2009. “Uncommonly beautiful,” wrote the New Yorker, “scene after scene glows with strange energy.” The New York Times called it “Mr. Adams’s most complex and masterly music.” The 2018 Nonesuch recording of Adams's opera Doctor Atomic was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording.

    Jeremy Denk’s two-week tour with Academy of St Martin in the Fields, which began in Florida last night, continues with concerts at The Peabody in Daytona Beach tonight and Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami on Saturday. The program includes works by Albinoni, Bach, Mozart, Britten, and Haydn.

    Denk’s new album, c. 1300–c. 2000, is out now on Nonesuch. “A thoughtfully curated, beautifully played, brilliantly annotated recital,” raves BBC Radio 3’s Record Review. The Sunday Times calls it “thrilling and deft.”

    Rhiannon Giddens performs as special guest of pianist Lara Downes at the Sixth & I Synagogue in Washington, DC, on Saturday. Giddens and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi head out on an eleven-city tour of Ireland next month.

    ---

    Gabriel Kahane brings music from his Nonesuch debut album, Book of Travelers, to Brooklyn for two sold-out shows at The Owl Music Parlor, tonight and Saturday. Kahane “is in possession of his own musical language,” writes the New Yorker. “He is one of the finest, most searching songwriters of the day.”

    Joshua Redman and the Still Dreaming quartet—drummer Brian Blade, bassist Scott Colley, and cornetist Ron Miles—conclude a European tour at Nasjonal Jazzscene in Oslo on Saturday. The group, which the Washington Post calls “consistently riveting,” released a Grammy-nominated self-titled album on Nonesuch last year.

    Redman and a different quartet—pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson—will release Come What May on March 29. The album, featuring seven originals by Redman, is available to pre-order now with an instant download of the album track “How We Do” and an exclusive, limited-edition print autographed by the group.

    Chris Thile hosts his public radio show, Live From Here, at Detroit Opera House on Saturday, with special guests Lord Huron, Amanda Palmer, Madison Cunningham, and comedian Mike Yard. Folks in the US can tune in on their favorite public radio station this weekend, and fans here and around the world can watch live online at livefromhere.org starting at 5:45 PM ET.

    Thile and his fellow Punch Brothers won their first Grammy Award this month, taking home Best Folk Album for their latest Nonesuch album, All Ashore. The Boston Globe says it's “a deeply meaningful and downright gorgeous record.”

    Yola celebrates today’s release of her debut solo album, Walk Through Fire, on Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound label, with two events in Nashville this weekend: a free in-store performance and signing at Grimey’s record shop tonight and a concert at Analog at Hutton Hotel on Saturday.

    Q gives the album four stars, calling Yola a “country-soul miracle.” The Guardian places it among the Best New Music of 2019. NPR says the album "showcases Yola's otherworldly vocals and compelling songwriting … It's the work of an artist sure to stun audiences for years to come."
