    Timothy Andres to Appear on Q2's "The New Canon"
    Michael Wilson

    Pianist/composer Timothy Andres, whose debut album, Shy and Mighty, was released in 2010 on Nonesuch, will appear on today's episode of The New Canon on Q2, the online stream from New York's WQXR dedicated to new music. Also on today's show is fellow composer/performer Gabriel Kahane. The two will talk with host Olivia Giovetti about the blurring line between classical and pop musics, where their own music fits in, and just what exactly the music being made now might be called. The show will also include recordings of their music, as well as that of Sufjan Stevens and Andres's fellow Nonesuch artist Chris Thile. The show airs today at 4 PM ET. Listen in online at wqxr.org.

    The New York Times calls Andres's Shy and Mighty "a richly imaginative 10-movement work for two pianos." The New Yorker calls it "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." To pick up a copy of the album, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album at checkout.

    Andres will perform a solo concert at Bargemusic, a floating concert hall housed in a 19th-century coffee barge under the Brooklyn Bridge, this Thursday night, June 9. He will perform some of his own pieces as well as works recent works by Christopher Cerrone, Derek Johnson, and Ingram Marshall, plus two new pieces commissioned for the occasion from Ted Hearne and Jacob Cooper. Andres will also participate in the free Bang on a Can festival at the World Financial Center's Winter Garden in New York on Father's Day, June 19, as will Philip Glass and many others.
