    Nonesuch President Bob Hurwitz Talks with NPR's "Here & Now"
    Jimmy Fontaine

    Nonesuch President Bob Hurwitz was featured on the NPR program Here & Now last week. He spoke with show co-host Robin Young about his more than three decades as head of the label and shares his perspective on the unique artists with whom he has worked over those years.

    "The rarest thing is when you hear someone who is doing something you have never heard before, and you love it," says Hurwitz. "And then it's a kind of instant reaction, almost like falling in love."

    You can hear the Here & Now piece, which includes music from the Buena Vista Social Club, Emmylou Harris, Henryk Górecki, Steve Reich, John Adams, Pat Metheny, Audra McDonald, Adam Guettel, and Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, below.
