“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."

Zoë Madonna, Q2 Music

"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."

"Tienda" Reviewed by the Star Tribune

"Tienda" obviously raised questions about immigration, questions that continue to be unresolved in present-day America. What lingered afterward, however, was the proud individuality of Moya's music. It movingly evoked all that can't be left behind when a person quits one country for the hope of a better future in another."
