    Stanford Live 2019–20 Season Includes Brad Mehldau, Rhiannon Giddens, Kronos Quartet, Laurie Anderson

    Stanford Live has announced its 2019–20 concert season, and featured among the performers taking the stage at Bing Concert Hall in Stanford, California, are several Nonesuch artists: Brad Mehldau, Kronos Quartet, Laurie Anderson, and Rhiannon Giddens with Francesco Turrisi.

    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.

    Two weeks later, Laurie Anderson performs a new multimedia piece, The Art of Falling, at Bing Concert Hall on Wednesday, January 29, 2020. The piece explores the subject of falling, through songs, images, poems, and electronics.

    The following week, Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi bring music from their soon-to-be-released album there is no Other, to the venue on Friday, February 7, 2020. 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.

    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko) has released a video for "Every Woman," a new song from her upcoming album, directed by Lino Asana and filmed on location in Mendocino County, CA. You can watch it here. "'Every Woman' is the thesis of my album," she says, "so I wanted the visuals to represent transparency and to create a world for this thesis statement to live inside of. It's an ode to all those who feel different and who actively search and fight for space." Vagabon begins a fall tour this week.

    Congratulations to Laurie Anderson, the 2020 recipient of The Vanguard Award & Residency at Joe's Pub at The Public Theater in NYC. The program celebrates the work and influence of an icon of American popular culture. She will be honored at the third-annual Vanguard Gala on February 3, with an all-star slate of artists and friends, with musical direction by Shara Nova of My Brightest Diamond and Chris Bruce, and her residency will take shape in a Sunday night performance each month, from March to December. "I love Sunday evening shows," Anderson says. "The end of the weekend is such a no man’s land—an interesting time to play with new combinations."
