    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.

    Ry Cooder's critically acclaimed album Chávez Ravine, first released on Nonesuch Records in 2005, will make its vinyl debut on September 6. With a cast of legendary Chicano musicians, Cooder recounts the story of how a Mexican-American community was razed to make way for L.A.'s Dodger Stadium. "A remarkable song cycle," said Rolling Stone, "a brilliant and flavorful film-noir history lesson." The two-LP vinyl edition was remastered from the original high-resolution source files and pressed on 140-gram vinyl. The set comes in a gatefold tip-on jacket with a twenty-page, full-color booklet. It is available to pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
