    Timothy Andres's "Shy and Mighty" a WNYC Pick of the Week: "An Impressive Debut"

    Timothy Andres's debut album, Shy and Mighty, recently released on Nonesuch, has been paired with LCD Soundsystem's latest, This Is Happening, as the Picks of the Week from Soundcheck, a program of New York public radio station WNYC. The two albums are matched as a work from "a classical composer inspired by rock and rock music inspired by electronic composers."

    The host of Soundcheck, John Schaefer, says of Andres: "He’s a young composer but he seems to have already worked through his influences—the rock ones and the classical ones like Brahms, Mahler, and Philip Glass—and developed a personal voice. It’s an impressive debut from the composer Timothy Andres."

    Hear more from Schaefer at wnyc.org.

    For his part, Andres, in his blog, describes his album release–week performance of Shy and Mighty at New York's (Le) Poisson Rouge, with his fellow pianist from the album, David Kaplan, as among "the most artistically and professionally satisfying experiences I’ve had in my life." Read more of what the composer has to say on his website, andres.com.

    Timothy Andres will perform "How can I live in your world of ideas?," which is featured on Shy and Mighty, in a concert at New York's Merkin Hall as part of the Tribeca New Music Festival, this Monday, June 7. For more information, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    To pick up a copy of the Shy and Mighty CD, with the complete album MP3s included at no additional cost on checkout, head to the Nonesuch Store.
