"John’s music has been such a constant in my life that it’s reached a base level of my consciousness—it’s part of the way I hear all music now," Timo Andres (pictured here with John Adams in 2007) writes in his note in the new 40-disc box set John Adams Collected Works. "But in this case, it goes beyond the music. John showed me a model for life as an artist, one in which being communicative, permeable, and all-embracing can coexist with good craftsmanship, strongly held opinions, and the pursuit of one’s life’s work with single-minded intensity." You can read his complete note from the box set here.

Composer/pianist Timo Andres was due to make his Carnegie Hall recital debut on April 29. The program was meant to feature several pieces from the new album I Still Play, out this Friday, and more. When the concert was canceled due to COVID-19, Andres filmed himself performing each piece on the program from home, and released the concert on YouTube the night it was meant to have taken place. You can now watch it here. "The music has taken on new depth during [this] process," Andres writes. "I love it all even more now. Each of the I Still Play pieces is a little conversational gem, distilling an aspect of its author’s voice into a concentrated nugget."
