Timo Andres, composer and pianist
Presented by the Phillips Collection Sunday Concerts
Monday, May 25, 2015 - 9:00pm
Timo Andres (b. 1985, Palo Alto, CA), is a composer and pianist who grew up in rural Connecticut and now lives in Brooklyn, NY. His debut album, Shy and Mighty, which features ten interrelated pieces for two pianos performed by himself and pianist David Kaplan, was released by Nonesuch Records in May 2010 to immediate critical acclaim. Of the disc, Alex Ross wrote in The New Yorker that Shy and Mighty "achieves an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams came on the scene." Timo earned both bachelor's and master's degrees from Yale, and in addition to music, he has worked occasionally as a professional graphic and web designer. A new album of his orchestral works, Home Stretch, was released by Nonesuch Records in July 2013.
An avid cyclist, Timo can often be sighted commuting astride his 1983 Mercian.
In this Phillips Collection recital, Andres offers an intriguing and introspective program, alternating Schubert Impromptus with etudes by American composer Philip Glass. This concert was recorded January 11, 2015 by Ed Kelly.
