    Timothy Andres's "Shy and Mighty" Recommended on Alex Ross's "The Rest Is Noise"; "The Awl" Calls It "Gorgeous"

    Pianist-composer Timothy Andres's debut album, Shy and Mighty, released last week on Nonesuch, tops the list of Recommended New CDs from Alex Ross, the music critic of The New Yorker, on his site, The Rest Is Noise. Last month, Ross featured Andres in an article for The New Yorker on contemporary composers creating outside "a stylistic party line," and called Shy and Mighty "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." See more of Ross's picks at therestisnoise.com.

    Shy and Mighty was recently featured in an article for The Awl by Seth Colter Walls, who calls the album "gorgeous." The site is streaming the complete album track "How can I live in your world of ideas?” Listen now and read what Colter Walls has to say at theawl.com.

    Andres will perform "How can I live in your world of ideas?” live on June 7 at New York's Merkin Hall as part of the Tribeca New Music Festival. He will then join the Ted Hearne Band for other works on the program. For more information on this and other upcoming performances, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    To pick up a copy of the Shy and Mighty CD with an instant download of the album as free, high-quality MP3s, head to the Nonesuch Store.
