Timo Andres is typical of many contemporary composers in how he takes inspiration equally from adventurous rock artists like Sigur Ros and Radiohead just as much as Brahms, Mozart, and Charles Ives. Alex Ross of The New Yorker has described his music as "the kind of sprawling, brazen work that a young composer should write." We hear two works by Timo Andres this week, plus music by Jennifer Higdon, Julia Wolfe, and more.
