    Richard Goode's Acclaimed Complete Beethoven Sonatas Recording Returns in 10-CD Set

    Acclaimed pianist Richard Goode's recording of Beethoven: The Complete Sonatas, originally released on Nonesuch Records in 1993 and nominated for a Grammy Award, is now available once again on compact disc, and at a new, lower price. The ten-CD box set includes ten individual CD sleeves and a forty-page booklet with the original liner note by the late musicologist Michael Steinberg.

    "An outstanding set," exclaims the New York Times. "It is hard to think of any other artist at once technically, temperamentally and intellectually as suited to the challenges of these sonatas." These "are performances to which one can return without fear of finding them stale," wrote the Guardian. "They lack mannerisms and any sense of a performing ego trying to insinuate itself between the music and listener—the same selfless gift that his teacher Rudolf Serkin exemplified. Superb." Gramophone calls it "one of the finest interpretations ever put on record."

    To pick up a copy of Richard Goode's ten-CD set of the complete Beethoven sonatas, head to the Nonesuch Store, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your favorite purveyor of fine music. The collection is also available digitally at a new low price on iTunes and Amazon and can be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Devendra Banhart's new album, Ma, is out now. He has also released a new video for his Carole King-inspired album track, “Taking a Page,” filmed by The Bardos during his recent trip to Nepal; you can watch it here. This is "sublimely understated, border-blurring folk rock," the Los Angeles Times says of the album. "There is a truth and authenticity to the songs via their warmth and generosity," says MOJO . "These are vignettes of lived experiences. Groovy and moving, in all the right directions." "Banhart's singular world remains as intoxicating as ever on the earthly, analogue-sounding Ma," says Q. "It feels as if all of human life is here."

    Rhiannon Giddens's new album, there is no Other, with multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, is now on vinyl. The two-LP vinyl edition includes four additional tracks, expanded liner notes, and new photos from the recording session; a new deluxe digital edition with the new tracks is also available. "This is acoustic roots music at its most glorious," exclaims Uncut, "and Giddens is fast becoming the genre’s brightest star in the firmament." "Wonderful," the Guardian declares. "Giddens is going supernova, and it’s a blistering thing." The Times of London says: "A starkly beautiful album that resonates with an ancient, enduring soulfulness." Giddens and Turrisi begin their fall tour in Alabama next week.
