    Listen: Timothy Andres in Concert at NYC's (Le) Poisson Rouge from Q2 Music
    Michael Wilson

    Composer/pianist Timothy Andres, whose debut album, Shy and Mighty, was released on Nonesuch in 2010, performed a concert at New York's (Le) Poisson Rouge in May of this year, coincidentally around the album's two-year anniversary. The program featured what Andres described as a "musical 'self-portrait,'" including two of his own pieces—How can I live in your world of ideas?, from Shy and Mighty, and his piece It takes a long time to become a good composer—as well as works by Ted Hearne, Ingram Marshall, Brahms, and Schumann. The Poisson Rouge concert has now been posted to Q2 Music, the online new-music station from New York's Classical 105.9 WQXR, as part of its Q2 Music Live Concerts series. Listen to the complete performance below.

    "Andres presented a unique program reflecting his eclectic musical tastes and influences," says Q2 Music of the concert. "With selections ranging from Brahms to Ingram Marshall to his own compositions, the evening showcased the breadth of Andres capabilities as both a performer and composer."

    Read more and listen to the individual pieces at wqxr.org.

    Additionally, Andres has created a playlist for the station, inspired by the challenges of his search for a new apartment, titled Music for an Anxious and Materialistic Week in Brooklyn, Summer 2012, including works from Schumann to Kraftwerk. See the complete list at wqxr.org and tune in to Q2's Mixtapes today at 3 PM and Thursday at 7 PM to hear it.
