    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of March 8–10
    Devin Pedde

    Chris Thile hosts his public radio show, Live From Here, at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium in New York City on Saturday evening, as the opening event of the hall’s Migrations: The Making of America festival. He is joined by special guests Belá Fleck, Edgar Meyer, Julie Fowlis, and Aoife O'Donovan. You can hear Thile discuss the festival on the latest episode of NPR’s The Thistle & Shamrock here.

    Thile and Meyer, a pair the New York Times has praised for its “blinding displays of dexterity,” can be heard together on three Nonesuch releases: a 2008 self-titled duo record, 2014’s Grammy Award-winning duo album Bass & Mandolin, and the 2017 Bach Trios album with Yo-Yo Ma, which the Times of London called “irresistible.”

    Thile and his fellow Punch Brothers, who won their first Grammy Award last month for their new album, All Ashore, head out on tour across the US with special guest Gabriel Kahane next week.

    Composer John Adams—whom the New York Times calls the composer of “some of the most spellbinding contemporary music” for the piano—saw his new piano concerto, Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?, given its world premiere by the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall last night. Performances continue this weekend, with conductor Gustavo Dudamel and pianist Yuja Wang, tonight, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon.

    A few hours north, the San Luis Obispo Symphony, led by Andrew Sewell, with Tracy Silverman on electric violin, performs Adams’s The Dharma at Big Sur at Cohan Performing Arts Center in San Luis Obispo on Saturday. Silverman can be heard on the piece’s first recording, released on Nonesuch in 2006, with Adams leading the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

    Tyondai Braxton performs at the Palace of the Republic in Berlin, Germany, on Sunday, as part of Berliner Festspiele. Q magazine called Braxton’s Nonesuch debut album, HIVE1, “a sonically absorbing experience.”

    ---

    Olivia Chaney continues her month-long tour of the UK and Ireland, featuring songs from her new album, Shelter, with a concert at Turner Sims in Southampton tonight. Shelter made year’s best lists from the Guardian, Mojo, and Uncut, which calls the album a “transcendent refuge from the storm.”

    Chaney was a guest on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune earlier this week; you can hear her chat with host Sean Rafferty and perform three songs here.

    Jeremy Denk’s two-week tour with Academy of St Martin in the Fields concludes in California this weekend, with concerts at Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts in Davis tonight, The Broad Stage in Santa Monica on Saturday, and Palm Springs Friends of Philharmonic in Palm Desert on Sunday. The program includes works by Albinoni, Bach, Mozart, Britten, and Haydn.

    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.”

    Rhiannon Giddens and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi continue their tour of Ireland at Courthouse Arts Centre in Tinahely tonight, Lime Tree Theatre in Limerick on Saturday, and Siamsa Tíre in Tralee on Sunday afternoon.

    “Everything that both of us talk about is about movements of human beings and how we affect each other,” Giddens tells the Irish Times of her work with Turrisi. “If you just look at our range of instruments, where they’ve come from and how they’ve travelled across the world, it’s pretty amazing.” You can read the feature here.

    Kronos Quartet and Iranian vocalist Mahsa Vahdat perform a showcase of works, including many written and composed for the quartet’s Fifty for the Future commissioning project, at Sala Główna, Narodowe Forum Muzyki in Wrocław, Poland, on Saturday.

    ---

    Gaby Moreno began a tour of Australia last night at The Fyrefly in St. Kilda, where she returns for a second night tonight. She has a trio of sets on Saturday and Sunday at the Port Fairy Folk Festival.

    ---

    Rokia Traoré performs in France this weekend, with concerts at Le Firmament in Firminy tonight and Centre Culturel Tisot in La Seyne-sur-Mer on Saturday. “Traoré has made the album of her career,” exclaimed the Times of her 2016 Nonesuch album, Né So. “This accessible yet sophisticated album offers its own defiance against hard times.”
