    Nonesuch Releases Brad Mehldau’s "Live in Marciac" February 22; Available for Pre-Order Now in Nonesuch Store

    Nonesuch Records releases Brad Mehldau’s Live in Marciac—a two CD, one DVD live album of a solo performance—on January 11 February 22, 2011. The recording was made at the Jazz in Marciac festival in France and includes original tunes by Mehldau as well as interpretations of songs by Kurt Cobain, Lennon/McCartney, Cole Porter, Radiohead, and others. The album is now available for pre-order here in the Nonesuch Store. As always, purchases from the Nonesuch Store include a high-quality digital download of the music at no additional charge, available release day.

    Brad Mehldau’s acclaimed new work Highway Rider receives its New York premiere in Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall tonight. Mehldau is joined by The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra conducted by Scott Yoo along with saxophonist Joshua Redman, percussionists Jeff Ballard and Matt Chamberlain, and bassist Larry Grenadier. The musicians gave the piece its world premiere at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis over the weekend and will give the European premiere at the Barbican in London this Saturday with Yoo leading the Britten Sinfonia, followed by performances in Brussels, Luxembourg, Köln, Heidelberg, Vienna, and Paris. The next US performance is at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles this January. Highway Rider is Mehldau's most recent Nonesuch release, which New York Times music critic Nate Chinen calls "this year’s most luxurious jazz release, a double album with Romantic underpinnings and a stealth foothold in classic rock."

    The other programs in Mehldau's Carnegie residency include: a solo recital on January 26 that features Mehldau’s original works for solo piano interspersed with the classical works of Bach, Brahms, and Fauré that have inspired him over the years; the New York premiere of a newly expanded version of his song cycle Love Songs with mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter (the also will perform traditional lieder and standards by composers including Brahms, Fauré, Ferré, Sibelius, and Strauss as well as songwriters John Lennon and Paul McCartney among others) on February 19; a professional training workshop at (Le) Poisson Rouge on March 5 and 6 (open to jazz music students only); and a program entitled Piano Power on Friday, March 11, featuring the world premiere of a new work co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall—for two pianos, six woodwinds, and voice.  Also on the program are duo piano works by two young American classical composers—Patrick Zimmerli and Timothy Andres. Joining Mehldau for this final performance are Andres and wind players Chris Cheek, Chris Potter, Joshua Redman, Joris Roelofs, Sam Sadigursky, and Greg Tardy and vocalist Becca Stevens.
     
    Additionally, Nonesuch will release a box set of Mehldau’s The Art of the Trio recordings later in 2011. Check back with the Nonesuch Journal for details to be announced soon.
