ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Moon Over Appalachia is a four-movement suite for solo cello inspired by the folk music of Appalachia, an enchanting musical tradition of lyrical melodies, foot-tapping rhythms, heart-wrenching lullabies, and above all, the spirit of an American people and their landscape.

With memorable melodies and colorful interplay, American composer Oliver Caplan’s (b. 1982) music expresses a deeply felt romanticism. Mr. Caplan’s music has been presented in over 85 public performances in 11 states, including the Bronx Arts Ensemble, Columbia University Wind Ensemble, Nebraska Chamber Players, and Juventas, among others. Accolades include Veridian Symphony Orchestra Composers Competition Winner (2014), Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts Residency (2014), Somerville Arts Council Grants (2014, 2013), Virginia Center for the Creative Arts Fellowships (2013, 2011), 5th House Ensemble Young Composer Competition Grand Prize (2010), and ASCAP Plus Awards (2008–2014). Mr. Caplan holds degrees from the Boston Conservatory and Dartmouth College. He currently resides in Massachusetts.
