Nonesuch Records at 50
It’s hard to believe, but Nonesuch Records has hit the half-century mark. A friend to artists of all backgrounds—contemporary classical, folk, Broadway, film music, and everything in between—Nonesuch has been there to bring forth the works of countless talents from around the world. The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) celebrates the revered label in the best way possible: with music by Steve Reich, John Adams, and a host of other renowned artists.

Unsuk Chin Concertos on DG and Lucerne Festival feature
A Deutsche Grammophon release, multiple world premieres, and a gig as Composer-in-Residence of the Lucerne Festival doesn’t seem to interrupt the flow of Korea’s most acclaimed composer. Unsuk Chin comes to New York to witness the US premiere of her Clarinet Concerto with soloist Kari Kriikku and the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Alan Gilbert.

New Works by Oscar Bettison
Oscar Bettison has been very busy lately. Four world premieres are lined up between September and November in North America and Europe. The Talea Ensemble, Berkley Symphony, Ensemble musikFabrik, and recorder master Susanna Borsch all give the first performances of works by the UK-born, US-based composer.
