Timothy Andres (b. 1985, Palo Alto, CA; Timo for short) is a composer and pianist. He grew up in rural Connecticut and lives in New York City. His compositions meld a classical-music upbringing with diverse interests in the natural world, graphic arts, technology, cooking, and photography. 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.
