Listen to this concert:

A New Sounds Live Co-presentation hosted by WNYC’s John Schaefer

Praised for his “acute ear” (New York Times) and “stubborn nose” (New Yorker) composer and pianist Timo Andres offers a new song cycle specifically created for fellow rising-star composers and multi-instrumentalists Gabriel Kahane, Ted Hearne, Becca Stevens and Nathan Koci. A multi-movement work inspired by old fashioned American parlor songs, Andres has invented his own set of “work songs” set to texts having to do with facets of professions, jobs and labor. The song arrangements are tailored to the unique strengths of the group, with the singers joining in on guitars, keyboards, accordion and banjo. The program will also include individual work by each of the other gifted composers in the collective, all arranged for the quintet to perform together.

Listen to EMF curator Judd Greenstein introduce this year's concerts.
