Robert Moran’s music is easy to like and easier to mislabel. Philip Glass is not just “Moran Light.” Moran’s minimalist tonal tendencies mask a sharp social critique and, like the composer himself, perhaps, are supremely seductive, even “disgracefully pretty.”

Beneath the surface, however, you will find the pathos of a mad king, Petronius’s vengeful suicide, an offering to gay film maker Derek Jarman dying of complications of AIDS, and love songs of Beauty and the Beast. These works show a variety of compositional methods, from through-composed works to I Ching-determined modules for performance improvisation, operatic scenes to dance and choral works. They also represent two kinds of energy: the dynamic, driving force behind Open Veins and 32 Cryptograms, as well as the tragical elegiac writing of Desert of Roses and Stimmen. The program as a whole seems to cover the entire gamut from beast to beauty.

WARNING: your heart may be ripped out and your tears jerked when listening to this music. Optional Kleenex® not supplied.

"...From the ridiculous to the sublime, the earthy to the ethereal, this collection reveals the many faces of this composer, with contrasts that make his work seem that much richer."

Ken Smith- Gramophone magazine
