"In this movement, the notes from the piano sound like tears breaking apart on the floor, the strings swirl like an approaching storm and hope retreats with the shake of maraca. It was a startling, unpredictable and gorgeous composition that brought Cruz-Diez’s work to life and made his colors tremble, dance and sing. It also demonstrated that Moya is a composer who has much to say about the human condition in the 21st century and should be listened to often."
Bangor Daily News


"Musically, "Tienda" fascinatingly blends classical idioms with the seductive beats and melodies of Latin America. With a basic ensemble of violin, viola, cello, guitar, piano and percussion, Venezuela-born Moya spans textures of pulsing vibrancy, subtly shading harmonies to trace the fragile emotional arc of his central characters."
The Star Tribune

“admirable String Quartet”

The New York Times

“Siempre lunes” visits a number of beguiling, attractive soundscapes: diatonic cascades like the sunrise in “Daphnis et Chloé,” or jostling rhythms that sound like broken clockwork... Let’s hope Moya returns to the Symphony, and next time with a larger work.
San Diego Tribune

“The Island with the Imaginary Moon,” is especially breathtaking, a gently melancholy moment to stop, breathe, and look around as the earth moves under you."
Zoë Madonna, Q2 Music

 "The piano and violin work supremely well together and as the pieces unspool there is a hugely exciting blend of the minimalist Adams expression, with the Venezualan folk music that inspires Moya – music that wends and dances, sways, forgets and remembers."
