Winter Moon, the debut release by violist/composer Rhonda Lorence, is an elegant, multi-layered marriage of new age and neo-classical. The global influences evident in her arrangements are subtle and varied, from Celtic to Moroccan, Asian to Eastern European. They crossover classes as well as cultures, integrating gypsy and gentry. A cathartic concerto to altered consciousness, Winter Moon is the soundtrack of the soul.

When asked about her creative process, composer Rhonda Lorence acknowledges an intentional spiritual aim for her music. "I think the most important thing is that it inspires someone to fully listen, feel and experience the complexity of emotions embedded within it." Winter Moon is a compilation of sensations which demands more of the listener. Infused with passion and underlying tension, these compelling neo classical compositions require repeated listenings to dissect the strata of instrumental angst and wonder.

The first composition and title track, "Winter Moon," opens with a softly percussive harp-like flutter that falls gently upon the ear as the first viola theme rings out in a lush mid-range lament. Amidst sprightly chimes, the viola establishes the initial theme, and is soon accompanied by a cascade of warm strings. The viola is freed to explore variations on the theme, dancing through divergent harmonies to the constant rhythmic "snowfall."

Suddenly all is quiet, and the second movement begins. The theme is echoed, but now joined by livelier percussion as it morphs into a Moroccan promenade. The now uplifted theme returns in exuberant triumph, bouncing off the rhythm until the viola finally settles down, fully spent, and drifts off into the falling cadence once again.

Whether you listen casually or critically, you will discover nuances in this composers artistry that fill you with wonder and enchantment. You will, in fact, feel the intricacy of emotions embedded within Winter Moon, as Lorence’s stories become your own. (Amazon)
