    Timothy Andres Featured in Wall Street Journal Article Examining His Many, Varied Musical Influences
    Michael Wilson

    Timothy Andres—whose debut recording, Shy and Mighty, is due out on Nonesuch May 18—is featured in a Wall Street Journal article titled "Bursting the Classical Bubble."

    In the piece, writer John Jurgensen examines how the 24-year-old composer, raised on the classical canon, was later introduced to a new world of music that included everything from iconic classic rock to contemporary classical icons like Steve Reich and John Adams, and how this confluence of musical styles has influenced his own work. To illustrate the point, the Journal takes a look at the top ten artist/composers on Andres's iTunes playlist, where Radiohead edges out Beethoven for the top spot by a hair.

    To read the article, see the playlist, and hear the Shy and Mighty album track "The night jaunt," visit wsj.com. To pre-order the CD and receive the complete album as high-quality MP3s on release day at no additional cost, visit the Nonesuch Store.

    Timothy Andres will be celebrating the album's release and performing Shy and Mighty at New York's (Le) Poisson Rouge on Monday, May 17. He will be joined on the duo-piano piece by David Kaplan, who also performs on the album. For more information on this and other upcoming performances from Andres, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
