    Timothy Andres to Make London Debut at Wigmore Hall, Perform on BBC Radio 3's "In Tune"
    Michael Wilson

    American composer-pianist Timothy Andres makes his London debut at Wigmore Hall tonight with a concert that marks the opening of the venue’s latest summer Late Night Series. The solo recital—a Time Out London Critics' Choice—will focus on Andres’s own music, as well as works by Ted Hearne, Ingram Marshall, Brahms, and Schumann. In an essay published on his website, Andres describes the program as a "musical 'self-portrait.'" He will give a taste of what's to come with an appearance on BBC Radio 3's In Tune this afternoon at 16:30 GMT. Tune in then on the radio and online at bbc.co.uk to hear him discuss his work and perform his How Can I Live in Your World of Ideas? and Brahms's Intermezzo in B minor, Op. 119, No.1.

    In advance of tonight's debut, Andres was featured in the Daily Telegraph's "New Faces" series. In the piece, Telegraph music critic Ivan Hewett gives readers some insight into the young composer-pianist's influences and achievements, explaining that his "mesmeric, minimalist-inspired two-piano album, Shy and Mighty, seized everyone’s attention in 2010." Read more at telegraph.co.uk.

    Praised for his "acute ear" by the New York Times and a "stubborn nose" by The New Yorker, Timothy Andres composes work that crosses boundaries and defies categorization. When Shy and Mighty, his debut album, was released on Nonesuch in 2010, critic Alex Ross observed "an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams came on the scene … more mighty than shy." "Andres is unquestionably a distinctive talent, with a fine teasing ear for texture and harmony," wrote Andrew Clements in the Guardian. "This sequence of nine movements glides across stylistic boundaries in a totally unselfconscious way."

    Up next on Andres's performance schedule: a June 20 concert at The Stone in New York City with the composer collective Sleeping Giant.
