    Timothy Andres Featured in Q2 Celebration of "Modern-Day Beethovens"

    Composer/pianist Timothy Andres was featured on Q2 Music's Nadia Sirota show today for an episode titled "Timothy Andres: Bringing the Virtuoso Composer-Performer Tradition Into the 21st Century." Q2, the online new-music channel from WQXR, New York public radio's classical station, is celebrating WQXR's "Beethoven Awareness Month" in its own fittingly contemporary way, looking at composers the show dubs some "modern-day Beethovens." This week's focus on Andres is the third in the station's four-part series this month offering "weeklong portraits of some of today's most distinct and inventive compositional voices."

    Included on today's show are four songs from Timothy Andres's 2010 Nonesuch debut album, Shy and Mighty, performed by the composer and fellow pianist David Kaplan. The show opens with the album's opening track, "Antennae," and goes on to include "How can I live in your world of ideas?," "Tunnel," and "Trip by Train." Each of the segments is preceded by an introduction from the composer himself.

    You can listen to the first hour of the episode below; for more information, visit wqxr.org.

    To pick up a copy of Shy and Mighty, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s at checkout.
