“admirable String Quartet”
The New York Times
"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
“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."
“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
"Siempre Lunes, Siempre Marzo showed innovative and animated orchestration . . . One could hear a new world opening up as the children of the novel touch ice for the first time, with lush orchestral colors accompanying a solo horn paired with piccolo."
Princeton Town Topics
"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."
