London Calling | The Sound of Nonesuch Records at the Barbican

FOLLOWING on from May weekends dedicated to the influence of Steve Reich (2011) and curated by Nico Muhly (2013), the Barbican's marathon weekend in 2014 celebrates Nonesuch Records - one of the most respected, innovative and diverse record companies around - in their 50th anniversary year.  The curated weekend of events includes six concerts taking place in LSO St Luke's, Guildhall School of Music & Drama's new Milton Court (daytime sessions) and the Barbican Hall (evening sessions) and features the BBC Concert Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia, Kronos Quartet, Crash Ensemble, NOW Ensemble, pianists Brad Mehldau, Timo Andres, David Kaplan, and music by Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Brad Mehldau, John Adams, Henryk Górecki, Jonny Greenwood and more.  The marathon weekend is part of a wider Nonesuch celebration at the Barbican which will include further one-off concerts and collaborations throughout May 2014, featuring a breadth of artists associated with the label and in the spirit of it.  Nonesuch Records was founded as a budget classical label in 1964 by Jac Holzman, head of the then-independent Elektra Records, and it has grown over the last nearly five decades to pursue a broad mission, including classical music, contemporary music, jazz, traditional American and world music, popular and alternative music, music theatre and dance.  See the full list of events at http://www.barbican.org.uk/music/series.asp?id=1326&show=listing. At the Barbican Centre, Silk Street, EC2Y 8DS London, United Kingdom, 17th and 18th of May 2014.
