Description: Like so many other 20th century Swiss composers, Moser's style is founded in late Romanticism but independent of any contemporary schools of composition. He uses church modes frequently because he felt restricted by the major-minor modes but was uninterested in dodecaphony; also, many of his works are subtly quite polyphonic. Everything here shows an affinity for naturally flowing melody and highly contrasting rhythms often add excitement to the mix.
