Description

Pianist R. Andrew Lee performs Dennis Johnson's 5-hour minimalist work NOVEMBER at the 2013 nief-norf Summer Festival. 

Steve Smith, Time Out NY review of November:

“Enter pianist R. Andrew Lee, whose impressive string of albums... has included major pieces by outliers like Tom Johnson, Ann Southam and William Duckworth. Lee’s new recording of November, a five-hour span of superhuman patience and stamina, rescues Johnson from oblivion, and offers a sea of tranquility far removed from the everyday grind."

Jay Batzner, Sequenza21 Review:

“November comes alive under the fingers and musical abilities of R. Andrew Lee... Given such few musical materials and so much time, there are rather few pianists who I think could pull this off. Some could work with these materials for 30 minutes, maybe an hour, but the ability to bring forth five hours of music in such a compelling-yet-accessible way is nothing short of a miracle.”
