Philip Glass & Steve Reich

Tastefully curated Warner Bros. subsidiary Nonesuch turns 50 this year and is still going strong (next week they may very well have the #1 album in the country with the Black Keys’ Turn Blue). And this September the label will celebrate its anniversary with a three-week series of concerts at the Brooklyn Academy Of Music. Nonesuch Records At BAM: Celebrating A Label Without Labels kicks off 9/9 with the Philip Glass Ensemble & Steve Reich And Musicians. This is especially notable because the two celebrated minimalist composers long ago had a falling out they discussed never publicly. This is the first time Glass and Reich will share a program in over 30 years. Other performers at the festival include Robert Plant, Laurie Anderson, Devendra Banhart, and Kronos Quartet. Here’s the full schedule:

Sep 9–11: The Philip Glass Ensemble & Steve Reich and Musicians [Nico Muhly and Timo Andres, Synergy Vocals, and others]
Sep 9: Brad Mehldau
Sep 10: Brad Mehldau & Chris Thile
Sep 11: Dawn Upshaw and Gilbert Kalish
Sep 12 & 13: Alarm Will Sound
Sep 12 & 13: Youssou N’Dour
Sep 18: Rhiannon Giddens
Sep 19: Devendra Banhart, Stephin Merritt, and Iron and Wine
Sep 20: Kronos Quartet, Natalie Merchant, Rhiannon Giddens, Sam Amidon, and Olivia Chaney
Sep 23–27: Landfall, Laurie Anderson, Kronos Quartet
Sep 24: Rokia Traoré, Toumani Diabaté, and Sidiki Diabaté
Sep 25 & 26: Caetano Veloso
Sep 27 & 28: Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters

The Black Keys will be in town, too, but they’ll play down the street at Barclays Center on 9/24. More details on the individual concert lineups can be found at nonesuch.com.
