New Piano-Based Music

Sunday, March 17, 2013

New music from the Neil Cowley Trio and the Bad Plus are on this New Sounds program, bands which on the surface resemble conventional piano trios, but pull liberally from the rock world and everywhere else.  We'll listen to both of their most recent releases, along with music from Rachel's, who also have a recent release.  Even though they are no longer together, this recording is of previously unavailable material.  All that, and more...

The Witty and Reverent Musical World of Timothy Andres

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Born in 1985, Timothy Andres (occasionally billed, somewhat insouciantly, as “Timo”) works in the post-dogmatic era of contemporary American composition. This means, among other things, that Andres feels as much at home recomposing (and playing) Mozart’s “Coronation” Piano Concerto as he does taking part in a street performance of Mauricio Kagel’s Eine Brise (for 111 bicyclists).

This week on Hammered! we'll amplify that description with piano music written and performed by musicians featured in the Ecstatic Music Festival.

Timothy Andres

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

I wrote Some Connecticut Gospel in the couple of months leading up to the 2008 presidential election. It’s partly a piece about Charles Ives and how his music and inimitable personality have become a legend for composers, and also about some strange feelings (hope? patriotism?) that had been welling up inside me for the first time in my life.
