    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of March 1–3
    Elizabeth Weinberg

    Mountain Man brings music from its Nonesuch debut album, Magic Ship, to a sold-out Ryman Auditorium in Nashville tonight, performing as special guest of Kacey Musgraves, ahead of its own headlining tour later this month. The band performed Musgraves’s song "Slow Burn” for an Aquarium Drunkard Lagniappe Session, which you can hear here.

    Earlier this week, the trio released its take on two John Denver tunes: “Take Me Home, Country Roads” and “Around and Around.” Mountain Man Sings John Denver is available to download and stream now, and the vinyl 7”, due June 7, is available to pre-order here. The band also recently gave an NPR Tiny Desk Concert of songs from Magic Ship. “These three women make the most intimate music; and behind the desk, [their] voices were the stars,” says host Bob Boilen. “There's a true kinship that happens in this trio ... There's no other band like them.”

    Composer John Adams and director/librettist Peter Sellars’ new opera, Girls of the Golden West, is given its European premiere by the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Grant Gershon, at Dutch National Opera in Amsterdam on Saturday. The New York Times has called Girls of the Golden West, set during the 1850s California Gold Rush, “the most eagerly anticipated new opera of the season.”

    Sam Amidon concludes his West Coast tour of the United States with saxophonist Sam Gendel in California this weekend, with shows at Michael's on Main in Soquel tonight and The Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles on Sunday.

    Composer/pianist Timo Andres joins multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily at The Owl Music Parlor in Brooklyn tonight. Andres and fellow pianist David Kaplan then give a performance of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony at Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township in New Jersey on Sunday afternoon. Andres and Kaplan can be heard performing together on the former’s Nonesuch Records debut album, Shy and Mighty.

    Olivia Chaney kicks off a month-long tour of the UK and Ireland, featuring songs from her new album, Shelter, with a sold-out concert at Whitstable Umbrella Centre, part of the Whitstable Sessions Music Club series, on Sunday. Shelter made year’s best lists from the Guardian, Mojo, and Uncut, which calls the album a “transcendent refuge from the storm.”

    Jeremy Denk’s two-week tour with Academy of St Martin in the Fields continues in the Midwest this weekend, with concerts at University of Illinois’ Sangamon Auditorium in Springfield tonight and Folly Theater in Kansas City, Missouri, on Saturday. The program includes works by Albinoni, Bach, Sally Beamish, Mozart, Britten, Haydn, Elgar, and Bartók.

    Denk can be heard performing Bach, Mozart, and many other composers on his new double album, c. 1300–c. 2000. “A thoughtfully curated, beautifully played, brilliantly annotated recital,” raves BBC Radio 3’s Record Review. The Sunday Times calls it “thrilling and deft.”

    Kronos Quartet and Iranian vocalist Mahsa Vahdat perform Music for Change: The Banned Countries at the Sixth & I Synagogue in Washington, DC, on Saturday. The program highlights the rich diversity of artistic voices from Muslim majority countries and, in protest against the travel bans issued by the Trump administration in 2017, features music from the original seven, largely Muslim-majority countries on the list—Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

    Earlier that morning, Kronos leads a free master class with student quartets from the Peabody Institute at Johnson Hopkins University and Shenandoah Conservatory at Meyer Auditorium’s Freer Gallery of Art.

    Brad Mehldau continues his seven-city European tour with tenor Ian Bostridge at Wigmore Hall in London on Sunday. The duo performs Mehldau’s new song cycle, The Folly of Desire—featuring lyrics from the poetry of Shakespeare, e.e. cummings, Brecht, Yeats, Goethe, Blake, and others—as well as Robert Schumann’s Dichterliebe, Op. 48.

    Gaby Moreno closes out a week of shows in the US Northeast with a performance at Rams Head on Stage in Annapolis, Maryland, on Sunday. Ahead of her performances for Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series and at Club Passim in Cambridge this week, she spoke with WBUR’s The Artery about her music and its being beyond categorization.

    Chris Thile hosts his public radio show, Live From Here, at the State Theatre in Minneapolis on Saturday, with special guests Broken Social Scene, the Vijay Iyer Trio, and Madison Cunningham. 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 4:45 PM CT.

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

    Yola, whose debut solo album, Walk Through Fire, is out now on Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound label, gives a free in-store performance and signs copies of the new album at Tower Records in Dublin today. The Wall Street Journal declares Walk Through Fire “a stunning achievement,” calling Yola “a major vocalist that stands to be remembered as a breakthrough.” The Sunday Times exclaims: “Walk Through Fire introduces an artist who is unmistakably the real deal.”

    Yola marked the album’s release last Friday with a Facebook Live performance of four songs from the new album with Auerbach and friends at his Nashville studio, which you can watch again here.
