Cécile McLorin Salvant begins a two-week European tour with a four-city tour of France, starting at Le Rocher de Palmer in Cenon tonight and Maison de la Culture in Bourges on Saturday. Salvant began the week with a concert livestream from Cabaret Sauvage in Paris for ARTE’s Les Concerts Volants, featuring songs from upcoming new album, Mélusine, a mix of originals and interpretations of songs dating as far back as the 12th century, mostly sung in French along with Occitan, English, and Haitian Kreyòl, due March 24. She has been nominated for the Deutscher Jazzpreis for International Vocal Album for her 2022 Nonesuch debut, Ghost Song.

Mary Halvorson begins an eight-city tour of Europe with her Amaryllis Sextet—trumpeter Adam O'Farrill, trombonist Jacob Garchik, bassist Nick Dunston, drummer Tomas Fujiwara, and vibraphonist Patricia Brennan—in the Netherlands this weekend, with shows at Bimhuis in Amsterdam tonight and LantarenVenster in Rotterdam on Saturday. Nonesuch Records released Halvorson’s twin label debut albums, Amaryllis, which featured all of the performers in the Sextet, and Belladonna, with Mivos Quartet, last year. The Guardian called them “new landmarks in Halvorson’s already inimitable discography."

Julia Bullock performs the role of Joséphine Baker in Tyshawn Sorey’s Perle Noire: Meditations for Joséphine, with International Contemporary Ensemble, at the Dutch National Opera in Amsterdam on Saturday, bookended by performances last night and on Monday, directed by Peter Sellars. “The soprano Julia Bullock is on the verge of an unconventional career,” says the New York Times, “one of the singular artists of her generation—a singer of enveloping tone, startlingly mature presence and unusually sophisticated insight into culture, society and history.” She released her solo debut album, Walking in the Dark, late last year on Nonesuch.

---

Sam Amidon joins the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and violinist Pekka Kuusisto at City Halls in Glasgow tonight, for Folk Inspirations with Pekka, performing traditional Appalachian folk songs and Amidon-penned tunes, with string arrangements by Nico Muhly. Also on the program are works by Missy Mazzoli, Sibelius, and Janáček.

---

Pianist Jeremy Denk joins the Westchester Philharmonic for an all-Mozart program at The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College in upstate New York on Sunday afternoon. Included on the program is Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 in D Minor, K. 466 which Denk recorded with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra for the 2021 Nonesuch album Mozart Piano Concertos. "Denk approaches everything with questing intelligence and energy," says the Observer. "His ornaments and cadenzas are full of wit and imagination, his ear for detail incisive and bracing.”

---

Tigran Hamasyan and his trio—bassist Matt Brewer and drummer Justin Brown—are in France with shows at L'Etage in Rennes tonight, Place du Foirail in Pau tomorrow, and Domaine d'O in Montpellier on Sunday. Hamasyan was joined by Brewer and Brown on his latest album, StandArt, his first album of American standards, released on Nonesuch last year.

Hurray for the Riff Raff—aka Alynda Segarra—performs an intimate acoustic set of music from their acclaimed 2022 Nonesuch debut album, LIFE ON EARTH, and more in a sold-out show at Chickie Wah Wah in their hometown of New Orleans on Sunday. They play a set at the New Orleans Jazz Fest in May before touring North America with First Aid Kit.

Gabriel Kahane brings his European tour to a close performing songs from his 2022 Nonesuch album, Magnificent Bird, in France this weekend, with shows at Café de la Danse in Paris tonight, Le Rocher de Palmer in Cenon on Saturday, and Equinoxe in Chateauroux on Sunday.

Steve Reich’s 2019 piece Reich/Richter gets its Belgian premiere in a performance by percussionist Colin Currie and the Asko|Schönberg ensemble at Concertgebouw Brugge on Saturday. The evening includes Gerhard Richter and Corinna Belz’s film Moving Picture (946-3), for which the piece was originally written. Also on the program are Reich’s 1970 piece Four Organs and Bryce Dessner’s Tromp Miniature. Nonesuch Records released the first recording of Reich/Richter, performed by Ensemble intercontemporain and conducted by George Jackson, last year. “Reminiscent of his earliest work," said the Financial Times, "it is very beautiful."
