Rhiannon Giddens concludes a UK tour with Francesco Turrisi, performing at St Andrew's & Blackfriars' Hall in Norwich tonight as part of the Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Town Hall in Birmingham on Saturday, and Saffron Hall in Essex on Sunday. It’s the end of a banner week for Giddens, who was named the winner, with Michael Abels, of the Pulitzer Prize in Music for their opera; announced her new album, You’re the One—her third solo studio album and her first of all original songs—due August 18 on Nonesuch; released the album’s title track; shared details of her upcoming tour with the biggest headlining shows of her career; and performed at London’s Union Chapel last night.

The Ballet Opéra de Paris French premiere performances of the Wayne McGregor ballet The Dante Project, set to Thomas Adès' score, continue at Palais Garnier tonight and Saturday, with the composer conducting the orchestra. The production, featuring set and costume design by visual artist Tacita Dean, continue all month.

The first recording of Dante, made by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel in concert at Disney Hall, debuted at No. 1 on the UK Specialist Classical chart last month and was named one of the 100 Best Pieces of Classical Music by the Times. The collectable limited vinyl two-LP edition includes artwork by Dean and photography from the Royal Ballet’s premiere performances.

Sam Amidon concludes his tour of Ireland with a set at The Black Gate in Galway, tonight, with several special guests—banjo-and-fiddle duo Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves and recent American transplant to the city Colin Tierney—before heading north for a solo performance at The Duncairn in Belfast on Saturday.

---

Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka Alynda Segarra) concludes a weeklong solo, acoustic run of dates at SOhO Music Club in Santa Barbara on Saturday. Segarra joins up with the band in Oakland on Monday for the start of a West Coast tour with First Aid Kit. A digital deluxe version of Hurray for the Riff Raff’s acclaimed 2022 Nonesuch Records debut, LIFE ON EARTH, was released last month.

---

Kronos Quartet is joined by the Youth Choir of Paris and choirmaster Richard Wilberforce for the French premiere of Terry Riley's Sun Rings in the Grande Salle Pierre Boulez at Philharmonie de Paris on Sunday, as part of the esteemed venue’s Space Weekend. The Kronos recording of Sun Rings, released on Nonesuch in 2019, earned a Grammy Award for Best Engineered Album.

---

Makaya McCraven performs at the Knockdown Center in Queens, New York, on Saturday, as part of the Outline Festival. McCraven recently won the Deutscher Jazzpreis for International Drums/Percussion. His new album, In These Times, released in September, made several year's best album lists, including those of Pitchfork ("a high-water mark"), NPR Music's Nate Chinen ("the culmination of a years-long experiment in groove ... just might be Makaya McCraven's manifesto"), and Treble ("McCraven's masterwork").

---

The Brad Mehldau Trio—bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard—performs at Konserthuset Stockholm in Sweden tonight. Mehldau’s new live solo album, Your Mother Should Know: Brad Mehldau Plays The Beatles, was released on Nonesuch earlier this year. Mojo gives it four stars, calling it “an inspired set that reveals new ways of hearing pop classics." The first-ever vinyl edition of his 2002 Jon Brion–produced album, Largo, on which Grenadier performs, is due June 16.

Natalie Merchant brings music from her new album, Keep Your Courage, to Ohio this weekend, performing at Keybank State Theatre in Cleveland on Saturday and Taft Theatre in Cincinnati on Sunday. “Superb,” writes Forbes’ Steve Baltin in a recent interview with Merchant about the new album. “An absolutely stunning collection, it is vintage Merchant in displaying heart, intelligence and integrity wrapped in indelible hooks and gorgeous melodies.” You can read the interview here.

Molly Tuttle and her band Golden Highway play Rural Hill Farms in Huntersville, North Carolina, tomorrow, for the North Carolina Brewers and Music Festival. Their new album, City of Gold, due July 21 on Nonesuch, follows their acclaimed 2022 label debut, Crooked Tree, which won the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album.

    Laurie Anderson will give the world premiere of ARK: United States Part 5, a new live stage work, at Aviva Studios in Manchester, England, November 12–24, 2024. "For a long time I’ve wanted to make a new large-scale work about the United States—a collection of songs and stories about what has shaped this country in the 21st century," she says. "I plan to tell these stories moving through myth, journalism, fable, and TikTok, conjuring alternate realities and stories from my own life. Part ruminations, part long-form poems, ARK will also be a kind of 3D movie."
