Richard Goode's Beethoven: The Complete Sonatas, first released on Nonesuch in 1993 and nominated for a Grammy Award, is available once again on CD, now at a new, lower price. The 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." The Guardian calls it "superb." Gramophone says it's "one of the finest interpretations ever put on record."

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.

    The second album from Haitian-American singer and composer Nathalie Joachim, Ki moun ou ye, is out now on Nonesuch / New Amsterdam Records. On the album, Joachim takes listeners through an intimate collection of music that ponders its title’s question: “Who are you?” Inspired by the remote Caribbean farmland that her family continues to call home after seven generations and performed in both English and Haitian Creole, the work examines the richness of one’s voice—an instrument that brings with it DNA, ancestry, and identity—in a vibrant tapestry of Joachim’s voice, and intricately sampled vocal textures underscored by an acoustic instrumental ensemble. "On her dazzling new album," says Bandcamp, "she's found an outlet that allows her to express the full diapason of her interests and creativity." The Quietus exclaims: "Joachim’s powerful voice provides the thread that binds together a glorious tapestry."
