by moonlight

One Sheet: 

by moonlight isn’t just a collection of works - it also provides a certain overview of my compositional life,” says Jeremy Beck.

Bringing together music of his present and past, this selection of orchestral, chamber, and vocal music opens a window into Beck’s sound world. From the celebratory Concertino for two cellos and strings to the pensive Serenade for orchestra, Beck’s musical language is direct and distinctly American. His music embraces a continuum of tonal compositional thought that organically embodies previous developments while moving forward in his own individual style.

Beck’s music has been called “… forceful and expressive. … concise in structure and generous in tonal language, savouring both the dramatic and the poetic” (Gramophone, 2013), while the critic Joshua Kosman has noted that “…novelty isn’t the only thing music can provide, and the moody expressiveness of Beck's writing is its own reward.” (SF Gate, 2013).

Through his music – by turns confident and vulnerable, outgoing and intimate – composer Jeremy Beck reaches out to the world, sharing his artistic vision of the beauty, struggle, and thoughtful wonder that reflects part of our human experience.
