LIFE ON EARTH made NPR Music’s list of The 10 Best Rock Albums of 2022. “Its eleven tracks of ‘nature punk’ are sharply constructed and deeply felt,” writes NPR’s Marissa Lorusso, “finding hope in the power of compassion and the fundamental interconnectedness of all living things.” NPR Music’s Ann Powers includes the album on her list of The 20 Best Albums of 2022, saying: “LIFE ON EARTH sounds like what Segarra describes as ‘nature punk’—cosmic in feel, anthemic in reach.”

    Thomas Adès’ Dante—a ballet score in three acts based on Dante Alighieri’s La Divina Commedia—was recorded by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel in concert at Disney Hall for the premiere recording, due April 21 on Nonesuch Records. Dante was first performed at the Royal Opera House as part of Wayne McGregor’s The Dante Project for the Royal Ballet, with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and with designs by visual artist Tacita Dean. “In any new shortlist of great ballet scores by Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Bartók, Ravel, Prokofiev, Britten, and Bernstein, Dante must newly be included for its musical invention alone,” exclaims the Los Angeles Times. “There is not a second in its 88 minutes that doesn’t delight. All of it is unexpected and wanted.” The collectable limited vinyl two-LP edition includes artwork by Dean and photography from the Royal Ballet’s performance.
