Beata Moon’s Saros CD is now available!


CD Baby

“Criticise this disc because it runs for under an hour but the music assuredly pleases: a tirelessly sincere and touching combination of song, drama and dance.” Musicweb International

"Composer Beata Moon...writes music with the elusive combination of simplicity and originality." All Music Guide

“Moon writes in an accessible style that combines post-romantic sensibilities with contemporary (if not necessarily classical) rhythmic and melodic gestures. As the works on Saros show, it's a powerful combination.” Off Topic’d

“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." John Montanari, Music Director of New England Public Radio

Thank you for taking the time to learn about my new CD.

I’m looking forward to sharing with you several of my chamber works that have not yet been recorded, including my latest work for cello and piano, “Tenancy,” commissioned in the Fall of 2011 to celebrate the modern dance company SENSEDANCE’s 20th anniversary season. Another SENSEDANCE commission, the piano trio “Dinner is West” (2005), is also included on this CD along with “A Collage of Memories,” for violin and piano, “Wood, Water & Land” for solo marimba, “Dickinson Songs” for voice and guitar, “Dragonfly” for viola, clarinet and piano, and “Rhapsody” for piano solo.

This CD was recorded by Leszek Maria Wojcik at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music on March 10 & 11, 2012 by these wonderful musicians:

Arash Amini cello
Cyrus Beroukhim violin
Patricia Davis violin
Patrick Durek guitar
Benjamin Fingland clarinet
Lisa Flanagan soprano
Jessica Meyer viola
Wai-Chi Tang marimba

Douglas Gorenstein photographed the images on CD cover and in the booklet. Lorenz Ehrsam designed the cover and booklet.


This CD is a product of an enormous amount of hard work and love. I especially would like to thank the following people for their tremendous show of support. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
