Notes and Editorial Reviews

After two albums on the Centaur record label, Sundance Trio releases its new album, Up and Away, on Tantara Records. The title of this album is inspired by an original composition from composer Alyssa Morris—an exciting piece infused with humor, tenderness, and spontaneity. Neoromantic and Latin-infused music rounds out this compilation for a rich listening experience. Sundance Trio was formed in 2005 to explore and perform trios written for oboe, bassoon, and piano. Based in Utah, the trio includes oboist Geralyn Giovannetti, bassoonist Christian Smith, and pianist Jed Moss. Giovannetti and Smith are faculty colleagues at Brigham Young University’s School of Music, and Moss is a sought-after solo and collaborative artist. "They are Read more truly a magnificent ensemble. Each artist is a talented and skillful musician, and since they have performed together so often, their ensemble playing is as good as it gets!” (Journal of the IDRS) Read less
