Performer Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Composer Matthew H. Fields allies himself with the broad banner of classical music. With each work he strives to push himself in new directions, incorporating flavors of America and Europe as well as his native Jewish and other cultures into a mixture freely admitting tonality and atonality, the modern and the ancient, the intellectual and the passionate. Centaur's new release features Mr. Field's Double Cluster, played by pianist Gloria Chuang, and the expansive, four-movement, astronomically influenced Space Sciences, played by the Moravian Symphony led by Jan Kucera.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Matthew Fields's music is colorful, active, and dexterous. Meandering piano is joined by disjointed orchestral outbursts in Double Cluster. Tubular bells join the strings and harp in weaving an ethereal soundscape that is then populated by the brass, woodwinds, and percussion in the second piece on the record, Space Sciences. The theme is space and celestial bodies, and Fields portrays this straightforwardly and predictably.
