Excerpt

Timothy Andres's debut album, Shy and Mighty, has made the New York Times Holiday Gift Guide for 2010. Traces of the composer's eclectic influences "show in this melodic, richly contrapuntal, often muscular 10-movement work," says the Times. "But what comes through most clearly is the inventiveness and originality of Mr. Andres’s own compositional voice." Andres will be featured on a special “Where Are They Now?” episode of NPR's From the Top this week; this “Alumni Musical Mavericks” program explores the different musical avenues five performers have taken since they first appeared on the show.

Timothy Andres's debut album, Shy and Mighty, released earlier this year on Nonesuch Records, has made the New York Times Holiday Gift Guide for 2010. "Eclecticism is the lingua franca of young composers now, so it is not surprising that Timothy Andres lists Brahms, Ligeti, Ives and John Adams among his influences, as well as Brian Eno, Sigur Rós and Radiohead," writes Times classical music critic Allan Kozinn. "Their traces show in this melodic, richly contrapuntal, often muscular 10-movement work. But what comes through most clearly is the inventiveness and originality of Mr. Andres’s own compositional voice." See the complete list at nytimes.com.

To pick up a copy of Shy and Mighty, with high-quality MP3s of the complete album included at checkout, head to the Nonesuch Store. Just in time for the holidays, the CD is now just $11.38 here at nonesuch.com—that's 33% off the standard retail price as part of the Nonesuch Store–wide third anniversary sale.

Andres will be featured on a special “Where Are They Now?” episode of From the Top, the NPR radio program showcasing talented young classical musicians and hosted by pianist Christopher O’Riley, airing this week. Featuring musicians who appeared on the show when they were younger, this “Alumni Musical Mavericks” program explores the different musical avenues these five performers have taken as they begin professional careers. The show will air on NPR stations across the United States this week, including WQXR 105.9 FM in New York City on Saturday, December 4, at 6 AM EST, and Sunday, December 5, at 6 PM.

On this week's show, Andres, now 25 years old, speaks with O’Riley about the many career highlights he has enjoyed since appearing on From the Top in 2003, at the age of 17, not least the release of Shy and Mighty, from which the track “The Night Jaunt” can be heard in the episode.

Fellow From the Top alumni also featured on the broadcast are 27-year-old pianist Tanya Gabrielian, 27-year-old violist Nadia Sirota, 25-year-old cellist David Requiro, and 17-year-old composer/guitarist Tim Callobre.
