    The New Yorker's Alex Ross Names Timothy Andres's "Shy and Mighty" Among the Year's Notable Recordings

    Timothy Andres's debut album, Shy and Mighty, has been named among the year's notable recordings according to The New Yorker's classical music critic Alex Ross. Upon the album's release on Nonesuch Records in May, Ross described the piece as "the kind of sprawling, brazen work that a young composer should write," achieving "an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams came on the scene." For Ross's list of The Most Memorable Moments in Music, visit newyorker.com.

    Andres prepares for another debut tonight, when he unveils his new piano piece It takes a long time to become a good composer. The composer will give the world premiere of the piece, paired with Schumann's Kreisleriana, in a concert at the Park Millennium in New York City with the Metropolis Ensemble, led by Artistic Director Andrew Cyr. Also on the program is Andres's Clamber Music, performed by the composer and violinists Owen Dalby and Tema Watstein. Performances continue with a sold-out Friday night show and a Saturday afternoon concert added due to popular demand.
