Chicago Wandelweiser Festival: R. Andrew Lee
Chicago Wandelweiser Festival: R. Andrew Lee
Denver-based pianist R. Andrew Lee is a stalwart advocate for minimal music. While he has performed in numerous venues dedicated to experimental music around the world, this performance will mark his debut in Chicago. His program will consist of music by the Wandelweiser collective to celebrate the release of Jürg Frey: Pianist, Alone, Lee's seventh studio album. Steve Smith, Associate Arts Editor at the Boston Globe, credits Lee's performance and recording of music by the Wandelweiser collective as one of the primary reasons the music has seen increasing visibility in the United States.

This concert is a part of the Chicago Wandelweiser Festival, a 3-concert festival exploring the works of the Wandelweiser composer/performer collective, co produced by a.pe.ri.od.ic and Frequency Series. Concert 2 features R. Andrew Lee, pianist who specializes in this repertoire,, performing works from his recent CD releases of the music of Jürg Frey and Eva-Maria Houben. Concert 3 features the German Wandelweiser composer Eva-Maria Houben performing her solo organ works at Rockefeller Chapel. This festival is made possible by support from the Goethe Institute, the Renaissance Soceity, and the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.

"Lee sends his piano sounds into the air as if he was artistically placing stones in a Zen garden.... [His] performance seems to accentuate these characteristics in a natural organic flow, creating a surreal feel as if time and space were wavering or stretching." Surround Journal
