Eric Moe is one of six winners of the 2012 Chancellor's Distinguished Research Award. The Pitt Chronicle reports that,
In his letter to Moe, the chancellor wrote, “With more than 80 works to your credit, your music is widely performed by the most accomplished soloists and ensembles in the U.S. and internationally. Your diverse output includes works for large orchestras, chamber music, solo instrumental, vocal and choral, electroacoustic, and multimedia compositions. Your colleagues laud your accomplishments, calling you ‘one of the most consistently impressive and compelling musicians working today’ and ‘one of the most accomplished and successful composers of his generation.’”
Congratulations to Eric Moe on this richly deserved award, and don't forget that you can hear not one, but two of his recent compositions on the upcoming Music on the Edge concert featuring Boston's Firebird Ensemble.
