    WNYC / New Sounds

    Attacca Quartet gave a first listen to music from Caroline Shaw’s Orange in a live performance at The Greene Space in New York City last Friday, ahead of the album’s release on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records this coming Friday. The performance was streamed live via WNYC's New Sounds—part of a twenty-four-hour marathon of free events at The Greene Space in celebration of its tenth anniversary—and can be seen again in full below.

    Caroline Shaw was the featured artist on the first episode in the new series of BBC Radio 3’s Unclassified, showcasing "genre-exploding new music for curious ears, hearts and minds," on Sunday. "I love it ... absolutely gorgeous music," says presenter Elizabeth Alker, who gave the radio premiere plays of two album tracks: "Plan & Elevation: III. The Herbaceous Border" and "Plan & Elevation: V. The Beech Tree." You can hear the episode again at bbc.co.uk.

    Orange, which features six of Shaw’s pieces for string quartet, is the first full-length album to exclusively feature works by the Pulitzer Prize–winning composer and is performed by Attacca Quartet on the record. Nonesuch Store pre-orders include an instant download of the track “Plan & Elevation: IV. The Orangery,” and an exclusive print of a painting created and hand-signed by Shaw and Attacca Quartet.

    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.
