    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of January 24–26

    Yola, who is up for four Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, on Sunday, has a busy weekend ahead in Los Angeles. She performs at the MusiCares Person of the Year concert tribute to Aerosmith at Los Angeles Convention Center tonight, the AmericanaFest Pre-Grammy Salute to Willie Nelson at the Troubador on Saturday, and the Grammy Premiere ceremony itself on Sunday afternoon. Tune in to see that last event, in which several Nonesuch nominees’ categories are awarded, live at 3:30pm ET on Sunday on grammy.com.

    Rhiannon Giddens, who is nominated for Best American Roots Performance for "I'm on My Way," from her new album, there is no Other, with Francesco Turrisi, also performs at the Willie Nelson tribute on Saturday. Before heading to California, she delivers the Folk Alliance International keynote address at the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans this afternoon.

    Kronos Quartet, which is nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Engineered Album for its recording of Terry Riley’s Sun Rings, performs selections from the piece in a sold-out concert in Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall in New York City on Saturday night. Also on the program are Steve Reich’s Different Trains, which won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Composition in 1989; works by Michael Gordon, Philip Glass, and Missy Mazzoli; and the world premiere of Bryce Dessner’s Le Bois. Paul Wiancko joins the Quartet as guest cellist while Sunny Yang is on maternity leave.

    Sun Rings is "a powerful listen," says Tablet, "a quietly meditative consideration of our place on the third rock from the sun ... It’s unquestionably beautiful.” Different Trains, says the New York Times, is "a work of such originality that 'breakthrough' seems the only possible description."

    Sam Amidon, who began a tour of the Iberian peninsula this week, performs at Auditório de Espinho in Espinho, Portugal, tonight, before returning to Spain for shows at Café Torgal in Ourense on Saturday and Centro Cívico Delicias in Zaragoza on Sunday.

    On Fatal Flower Garden EP (A Tribute to Harry Smith), released last fall on Nonesuch, Amidons offers his take on four songs from Anthology of American Folk Music, Smith’s beloved and influential 1920s and ’30s folk music recordings.

    Laurie Anderson began four nights of concerts at SFJAZZ—where she is a resident artistic director—in San Francisco last night, continuing with three concerts at Miner Auditorium this weekend: a duo show with cellist Rubin Kodheli tonight; a different duo set with singer/composer Mike Patton focusing on the final chapter of Jixiao Xinshu, the Ming dynasty military manual, on Saturday; and a solo set of songs and pieces from her new book on Sunday.

    Devendra Banhart, who began a European tour this week, is in Central Europe this weekend for two shows in Germany—at Astra Kulturhaus in Berlin tonight and Felsenkeller in Leipzig on Sunday—and a concert at Palac Akropolis in Prague on Saturday. “Banhart's singular world remains as intoxicating as ever on the earthly, analogue-sounding Ma,” says Q in a four-star review of his new album. “It feels as if all of human life is here.”

    Last week, Nonesuch released a Helado Negro remix of the Ma track “Love Song,” a video for which can be seen here. The track is also available for download from the Nonesuch Store and iTunes and may be streamed at Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon.

    Jeremy Denk joins the Pro Music Orchestra, led by Thomas O’Connor, at Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on Saturday and Sunday. The program includes Haydn’s Symphony No. 104, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 19, Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1, and Melinda Wagner’s Little Moonhead.

    Denk can be heard performing music by Mozart and many other composers on his new double album, c. 1300–c. 2000, “a thoughtfully curated, beautifully played, brilliantly annotated recital,” says BBC Radio 3.

    ---

    Emmylou Harris plays a sold-out show at UNC’s Greensboro Auditorium tonight and leads a masterclass and Q&A session prior to the concert. Harris “seems almost a genre unto herself,” writes the Los Angeles Times. “An artist to whom listeners can turn without knowing how to classify her music, but secure in knowing their time won’t be wasted on frivolity … she plumbs the deepest reaches of human experience.”

    Mandy Patinkin continues to tour the United States with pianist Adam Ben-David, performing songs from his new album, Children and Art, at The Shubert in New Haven, Connecticut, on Saturday.
