Timothy Andres
(b. 1985, Palo Alto, CA) is a composer and pianist. He grew up in rural Connecticut and lives in Brooklyn, NY. His compositions meld a classical-music upbringing with diverse interests in the natural world, graphic arts, and technology. 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.

An avid pianist from an early age, Timothy (Timo for short) performs widely, focusing especially on music by his contemporaries. “New music cannot be intimidating when played with this degree of skill and zest,” proclaimed BostonGlobecritic Richard Dyer. Andres recently played solo concerts at Strathmore Performing Arts Center and on the Wordless Music Series at Miller Theater (Columbia University, NY), and performed his solo piano piece How can I live in your world of ideas? on the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Green Umbrella series; the Los Angeles Times’s Mark Swed pronounced it “irresistible”.
