Brooklyn-based composer and pianist Timothy Andres melds a classical-music upbringing with diverse interests in the natural world, graphic arts, technology, cooking and photography.
He has been praised for his “acute ear” by the New York Times’s Anthony Tommasini and “stubborn nose” by the New Yorker’s Alex Ross. His debut album, Shy and Mighty, was released in 2010 on Nonesuch. For this special performance at 92YTribeca, Andres notes, "My set has a "songs without words" theme, inspired by a piece by the young British composer Martin Suckling, Lieder Ohne Worte. Martin's piece is a kind of choose-your-own-adventure Die Schöne Müllerin, taking material from Schubert's song cycle in a totally different direction but somehow ending up in the same place. I chose two Schubert pieces to surround this: the G-flat Impromptu Op. 90 and Liszt's arrangement of Stänchen. My own two pieces, At the River and Fast Flows the River are settings of American songs—the first a minimal explosion of the famous hymn, the second a contemplative setting of a folk tune for cello and Hammond organ (featuring New Morse Code cellist Hannah Collins)."
New Morse Code—a trio featuring cellist Hannah Collins, percussionist Michael Compitello and violinist Anne Lanzilotti—is dedicated to communicating with a cultural language that reflects our time by advocating for new expressions in contemporary music and culture. United by its members’ experiences performing contemporary music abroad, New Morse Code strives to present bold, engaging performances of new and recent works while encouraging collaboration with instrumentalists, actors, dancers and visual artists. At 92YTribeca, they'll present a program of vibrant works by young New York composers Andy Akiho, Matthew Barnson and Robert Honstein alongside contemporary masterpieces by Alejandro Viñao, György Kurtág and Per Nørgård.
