    Brad Mehldau, whose new album, Finding Gabriel, is out next month, is the first to take the stage when he and tenor Ian Bostridge perform Mehldau's new song cycle, The Folly of Desire, at Bing Concert Hall on Wednesday, October 16, 2019. Also on the program is Schumann’s Dichterliebe.

    Kronos Quartet helps ring in the New Year with a performance on Wednesday, January 15, 2020. On a program titled The 60's, The Years That Changed America, Kronos performs a piece inspired by Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech along with music from throughout the decade.

The new album, due May 3, 2019, is at once a condemnation of “othering” and a celebration of the spread of ideas, connectivity, and shared experience.

    The first recording of Donnacha Dennehy's The Hunger—performed by Alarm Will Sound led by Alan Pierson, soprano Katherine Manley, and sean nós singer Iarla Ó Lionáird—is out this Friday. Alarm Will Sound has shared a short film in which the composer and performers tell the story behind the piece. "It's not just really about the Irish Famine. It's about any kind of unfolding catastrophe that's complicated by political ideas of 'the other,'" says Dennehy. "This happens throughout the world still to this day. We don't have to look very hard for parallels, I'm afraid." You can watch the short film here.

    Yola has joined The Highwomen—Amanda Shires, Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, and Maren Morris—on the just-released self-titled track to the group's eponymous upcoming album, as does Sheryl Crow. Shires and Carlile wrote the song with Jimmy Webb, who had penned the 1985 tune "Highwayman" for the supergroup by that name featuring Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, and Johnny Cash. Hear it here. Rolling Stone called The Highwomen's recent Newport Folk Festival set with Yola "a triumph" and dubbed her "the single most sought-after voice at this year’s festival."
