Brian Eno and Mozart are two names one may not expect to be paired up. Yet pianist and composer Timo Andres counts Eno and Mozart among his influences, and has found a way to couple them. On his new album, Home Stretch, Andres plays off of works by both of those composers, matching his reinventions of those pieces with a composition of his own. The result is a buoyant and fascinating record.
Timo Andres performs at Housing Works tonight (Tuesday, July 30).
