Excerpt from Timo Andres’s Home Stretch (Nonesuch Records)
By Clara Yang
Timo Andres, piano, the Metropolis Ensemble, Released on 7/30/14.
The concepts of this piece and the piano writing bear similarities to the piece I will be recording.
“The piece is in three large sections which gradually accelerate: beginning in almost total stasis, working up to an off-kilter dance with stabbing accents, and ushering in a sturm-und-drang cadenza which riles itself up into a perpetual-motion race to the finish.” -Andres
