    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of October 25–27
    Devin Pedde

    Chris Thile hosts his public radio show, Live From Here, from a sold-out show at its new home, The Town Hall in New York City, on Saturday, with special guests Rachael & Vilray, Paul Simon, Mavis Staples, comedian and actress Janeane Garofalo, and writer Brian Platzer. Folks in the US can tune in on their favorite public radio station this weekend and around the world via livefromhere.org, starting at 5:45 PM ET.

    Lake Street Dive singer-songwriter Rachael Price and composer, singer, and guitarist Vilray head out on tour in support of their self-titled debut album, Rachael & Vilray, next week. “The voices of acoustic duo Rachael & Vilray are magical enough on their own,” writes Chronogram, “but when they blend in song the results are utterly sublime.” The New York Times says the album is “as cozy as it is sophisticated.”

    Devendra Banhart continues the Western US leg of his tour featuring music from his new album, Ma, with two shows in California, at The Yost Theater in Santa Ana tonight and Observatory North Park in San Diego on Saturday, and a concert at Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix, Arizona, on Sunday.

    Ma is “sublimely understated, border-blurring folk rock,” writes the Los Angeles Times. “Banhart's singular world remains as intoxicating as ever on the earthly, analogue-sounding Ma,” says Q in its four-star review. “It feels as if all of human life is here.”

    Pianist Jeremy Denk joins the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, led by Nicholas McGegan, in performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 19 at the Alex Theater on Saturday and Royce Hall on Sunday. The program also includes works by Schubert and Rameau.

    Denk performs works by Mozart and many other composers on his new double album, c. 1300–c. 2000, which BBC Radio 3 calls “a thoughtfully curated, beautifully played, brilliantly annotated recital.” The Sunday Times calls it “thrilling and deft.”

    Rhiannon Giddens and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi continue their US tour in support of her new album, there is no Other, with sold-out shows at The Ark in Ann Arbor, Michigan, tonight and City Winery in Chicago on Saturday and Sunday. The new album made Rolling Stone’s list of The 50 Best Albums of 2019 So Far; American Songwriter calls Giddens “one of the most important musical minds currently walking the planet.”

    ---

    Gabriel Kahane performs at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 in New York City on Sunday, joined by special guest vocalist Aoife O’Donovan to mark the vinyl release of his 2011 album, Where are the Arms. Kahane’s latest album, Book of Travelers, is “extraordinary,” exclaims the San Francisco Chronicle, “vivid and wholly original.” Kahane “is in possession of his own musical language,” says the New Yorker. “He is one of the finest, most searching songwriters of the day.”

    Kronos Quartet plays A Concert for the Climate at 1687 Market Street in San Francisco on Sunday to support Oil Change International, a research, communications, and advocacy organization focused on exposing the true costs of fossil fuels and facilitating the ongoing transition to clean energy.

    Sun Rings, the first complete recording of Kronos’s groundbreaking collaboration with composer Terry Riley, recently released on Nonesuch Records, is “unquestionably beautiful,” writes the Tablet. Gramophone says it “resonates powerfully.”

    Gaby Moreno continues her European tour at Razzmatazz in Barcelona on Friday. She heads to Germany for a concert at Kultur Forum in Brackenheim on Saturday before returning to Spain to play Sala BBK in Bilbao on Sunday.

    ¡Spangled!, Moreno’s new album with Van Dyke Parks, is “a luscious, string-laden collection of songs,” writes the Guardian, “celebrating the music of the Americas from Panamanian bolero to Brazilian bossa nova. Accompanied by storied producer Van Dyke Parks, Moreno presents a beguiling argument for the power of musical migration.”

    Yola brings music from her Dan Auerbach–produced debut album, Walk Through Fire, to Bridgestone Arena in Nashville tonight, performing as a special guest of Kacey Musgraves. She begins a European tour next weekend as special guest of Greta Van Fleet.

    Yola stopped by KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic last week to perform songs from Walk Through Fire, plus her take on Elton John's classic "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," and chat with host Anne Litt about her music. You can watch the session here.
