Eventbrite - R. Andrew Lee (piano)

Pianist R. Andrew Lee is one of the foremost interpreters of minimal music. He has been described as having “consistently impressive solo releases” (New York Times), and his CD, Eva-Maria Houben: Piano Music, was chosen by Alex Ross in The New Yorker as one of the Top 10 Classical Recordings of 2013. In his tenure with the Irritable Hedgehog label, he has recorded eight albums, including the premiere recording of Dennis Johnson’s 5-hour minimalist epic, November, which was selected by Time Out New York as the best classical recording of 2013.

Lee has dedicated himself to the performance and recording of new music. He has premiered or released the premiere recording of compositions by many composers whose work lie on the boundaries of minimal music. Current projects include a 3+ hour commission for piano and live electronics from Randy Gibson and a disc of music by Paul A. Epstein, whose music lies at the intersection of total serialism and minimalism.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency which is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, administrated by the Mayor’s Office of Arts + Culture.
