Catalogue Number: 09K102
Description: Mouzas' career so far has concentrated on music for film, documentaries, television and commercials but he also has ballet and concert music on his CV. Each of these five pieces - three for full orchestra and two for strings - seems to describe a psychological state of mind or to depict a scene the details which are unknown to the listener. Although the composer's own note talks of "transformation of texture" or "complex multi-textural layers" or "multi-level horizontal and vertical development", the result is much less complex than this makes it sound: dramatic, orchestrally colorful and immediately engrossing music which should appeal to collectors of modern, tonal orchestral music.
