This is a discussion with pianist/composer Timo Andres, artist/book designer Peter Mendelsund, and The New Yorker’s Leo Carey. Andres, whose most recent album, Home Stretch, explores and recreates pieces by Mozart and Brian Eno, is a huge admirer of Peter Mendelsund, who has designed book jackets for iconic authors such as Joyce, Kafka, Cortázar, and Foucault. Together with the help of critic Carey, they will talk about their respective “anxiety of influences” and the ways in which they hope to remain faithful to a tradition while making it their own. Copies of Home Stretch, which releases that day, will be on sale.
