The Waltz Project Revisited: New Waltzes for Piano

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Patsy Morita
The Waltz Project Revisited, by Eric Moe, shows just how diverse contemporary music is. The term waltz proves to be as flexible and durable as a springboard in these miniatures. The composers represented here used the traditional waltz in 3/4 time as a starting point for these varied and distinctive works, running the gamut from sentimental to quirky, from dissonantly atonal to polytonal, and from those with an easy-to-follow beat to those without. Through all of these, Moe unmistakably brings out the intrinsic characteristics that define each waltz. Louis Karchin's "Ghost Waltz" is spooky in an ethereal way. "Shadow Waltz," by Mathew Rosenblum, is defined by the way the ...

All Music Guide - Patsy Morita
The Waltz Project Revisited, by Eric Moe, shows just how diverse contemporary music is. The term waltz proves to be as flexible and durable as a springboard in these miniatures. The composers represented here used the traditional waltz in 3/4 time as a starting point for these varied and distinctive works, running the gamut from sentimental to quirky, from dissonantly atonal to polytonal, and from those with an easy-to-follow beat to those without. Through all of these, Moe unmistakably brings out the intrinsic characteristics that define each waltz. Louis Karchin's "Ghost Waltz" is spooky in an ethereal way. "Shadow Waltz," by Mathew Rosenblum, is defined by the way the microtonal keyboard follows, in its own intriguing fashion, what is played on the traditional piano. Even Wayne Peterson's "Valse Subliminale" and Charles Wuorinen's "Self-Similar Waltz," the two least obvious waltzes, are treated not only with respect for their construction, but with genuine feeling and humor. A healthy respect for the past is found in Joan Tower's "Red Garnet Waltz," which uses Debussy's colorful chords, and in Akin Euba's "Study in African Jazz 3," which quotes "I Got Rhythm." Moe's own "Pulaski Skyway Waltz" and Anthony Cornicello's "PostModern Waltz," both immediately appealing for their sophisticated, rhythmic energy, quote from jazz pianists Mal Waldron and McCoy Tyner, respectively. Ricky Ian Gordon's polytonal "Waltz" is as tenderly handled as Zygmunt Krauze's "Music Box Waltz" is delicately. Lou Harrison's and Philip Glass' waltzes are quintessential illustrations of their styles: Harrison uses Asian pentatonic scales in a tranquil, uncomplicated manner; Glass alternates an almost frenetic theme with a slower, out-of-sync one, all accompanied by a staccato ostinato. The sheer variety and Moe's facility with all of them ensure that listeners will find more than one waltz to their liking. It just goes to show that you can teach an old dance new tricks.
