About this Recording

MOON: Piano Works

Korean-American Beata Moon creates music unbeholden to any compositional trend, while completely idiomatic and informed by a wide purview of music history. In Piano Sonata, Moon maintains her characteristic buoyancy, making the work a refreshing response to the genre's legacy. Submerged is a mysterious tone poem that recalls the ultra-modernist pyrotechnics of Scriabin and Leo Ornstein. In Transit is a short suite of delightful miniatures about New York City. Guernica, the least discernibly tonal of her compositions, is more than a little bit unsettling, and intentionally so. An ideal introduction, this disc contains a fine selection of Moon’s first decade of compositions for the piano with her newly-recorded performances.
