    Timothy Andres's "Shy and Mighty" Offers Wide Appeal, Says Five-Star Audiophile Audition Review

    Timothy Andres's debut album, Shy and Mighty, released earlier this week on Nonesuch, has been described by New York Times music critic Allan Kozinn as "a richly imaginative 10-movement work for two pianos, performed by Mr. Andres (who is a formidable pianist as well) and David Kaplan." The album has now received a perfect five stars from Audiophile Audition.

    "Many of his pieces have a strong pastoral quality, but he also likes short sonic surprises that give deeper insight into a work or take it in a new direction," Audiophile Audition reviewer John Sunier writes of Andres.

    The reviewer cites the pianist-composer's "fresh new and creative take on music which is worlds different from the usual 'cross-over' effort, as it is from jazz piano or classical miniatures for piano." Sunier considers the album one that "should appeal to a wide variety of listening tastes," concluding: "Give this young man an open-eared listen."
