ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Beata Moon has established herself as a vital and singular voice in American composition; her music has won praise in the New York Times, Gramophone, The Village Voice, MusicWeb International and the All Music Guide among other publications. She is also in considerable demand as a pianist and chamber musician in New York's bustling concert scene. Moon's work is noted for its great originality, natural, idiomatic feel and assured technical skill. Saros -- a cycle of eclipses of the Moon that is useful for calculating when future eclipses shall occur -- collects together seven works composed between 2005 and 2011 into a cycle of its own, orbiting through a full and varied menu of moods through chamber pieces, piano music and songs.

"a great pleasure"
"Varied in scoring, from traditional piano trio to marimba solo, the selections draw one in, keep one engaged, and never, ever, try one's patience or waste one's time. Sprightly in rhythm and generous with melody, the music calls to mind the late composer Lou Harrison's statement that music is basically 'a song and a dance."

love it!
Beata Moon's music continues to amaze me. In her new CD she takes us through acoustic landscapes that challenge and delight. Her sonic vignettes of mood, color and texture explore a fascinating variety of moods and ideas. Highly recommended!

"recommended"
Composer Beata Moon, born in North Dakota and raised in Indiana outside Chicago, writes music with the elusive combination of simplicity and originality...Her style is not easily classifiable as avant-garde or conservative. Sample some of the seven-movement piano trio Dinner Is West (the title comes from Gertrude Stein). The music is full of Romantic and Impressionist gestures, but it is based on rigorously maintained and developed sets of pitches. It's as though the language of Bartók's folk-based pieces had been pushed backward to Romanticism rather than forward to the avant-garde language of postwar Hungarian music. Another contemporary element is the presence of hints of jazz and blues: not as an allusion or as a crossover gesture, but simply as a natural option for someone growing up in the contemporary musical world.
