Frequency Festival presents R. Andrew Lee

  • Bond Chapel, University of Chicago (map)

One of the most respected practitioners of contemporary music, Denver pianist R. Andrew Lee is a musician marked equally by pinpoint precision and remarkable nuance. Lee specializes in minimalist works, and he gained broad acclaim for his performance of the landmark Dennis Johnson composition November. His 2013 recording featuring the piano music of composer Eva-Maria Houben was named one of the top 10 albums of 2013 by New Yorker critic Alex Ross. This evening’s solo recital will focus on the 2014 Adrian Knight piece Obsessions, which Lee featured on an acclaimed 2016 album; the program is rounded out by works from Ann Southam, Leah Kardos, and James Sellars.
