ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Korean-American pianist Beata Moon leads an active life as a composer, performer and educator. After graduating from the Juilliard School in 1990 with a degree in piano performance, she followed her own path to composing first through improvising for dance classes and then by composing music for choreographer Henning Rübsam and his modern dance company, SENSEDANCE. Gradually, she began to compose solo and chamber works for various performers and collaborators, which eventually led to the release of her first CD of entirely her own compositions on the prestigious independent label, Albany Records. Perigee & Apogee was well-received by press and public alike and continues to be broadcast on radio stations across the nation.

Composing led her back to piano performance, and Moon performs unique piano recitals featuring both traditional and contemporary works, including her own compositions.

An ardent supporter of education and outreach, Moon became a teaching artist in 1997 for Lincoln Center Institute where she continues to lead workshops for students and teachers in the New York Metropolitan area. She has also conducted workshops for school administrators from across the nation. In addition to her private piano teaching studio, Moon works with at-risk youth in conjunction with the Police Athletic League and composer Kevin James' Portraits Project program, which brings musicians and poets together to serve as mentors for the children.

In 2001, she formed The Beata Moon Ensemble, an all-female chamber ensemble created to promote women composers, conductors and performers. Comprised of some of the best musicians in New York, they made their debut at Columbia University's Miller Theatre on February 22, 2002, to critical acclaim. Violinist Lara St. John was the guest soloist, and Sarah Ioannides, associate conductor to Tan Dun, led the ensemble in works by Tania Leon, Ruth Crawford, Anne LeBaron, Julia Wolfe, Elena Kats-Chernin and one of Moon's own pieces.

Through her work, Moon hopes to reach out to audiences of all backgrounds to share with them how fresh and life-affirming classical music can be.

exceptional music
Heard the Wind Quintet on the radio (what a welcome surprise!) and loved it, led me to the CD and a wealth of great music, with a wide variety of moods and emotion. Check it out!

"she has it in her to grip the listener..."
"A composer of many facets: populist, jazzy, bleak, modernistic, minimalist. She has it in her to grip the listener..."

Stimulating and challanging. Beata's imagination ranges widely, as she delights with great invention. I listen to this cd frequently, and enjoy it greatly each time, as I always discover something new in it.
