Notes & Reviews:

A stellar lineup of new music ensembles and performers, including the Brentano and Manhattan String Quartets and the percussion ensemble Talujon, are featured on this new disc of chamber works by noted composer Eric Moe. Called "music of winning exuberance," by the New York Times, this disc includes works for string quartet; for percussion ensemble; solo percussion; soprano and string quartet; and a work for viola and cello. Moe, a graduate of Princeton and the University of California at Berkeley, is the recipient of numerous awards and commissions, including the Lakond Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Recordings of his music appear on the Naxos, Koch, New World and Albany Records labels. He is currently on the faculty at the University of Pittsburgh.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
Eric Moe's music is a fine example of today's American art music. Half of these pieces are academic-expressive with classical background; the other half are brash, entertaining, and indebted to rock. They will appeal to audiences with differing tastes, but all are skillfully formed and thoroughly musical.
