Marin Alsop | London Symphony Orchestra 2022 - THE MOONS SYMPHONY
“I hope that the listener to this piece can feel not just the power and the majesty
of the music but also the incredible science behind the piece…
we know such a small amount about our universe and
this symphony starts to shed light on that fact”
Marin Alsop - Interview with Knights Classical, St Lukes May 21, 2022
“While examples of space-inspired art music goes back to at least Gustav HOLST The Planets…Amanda Lee Falkenberg’s
THE MOONS SYMPHONY is one of the most extraordinary achievements
in space-inspired music, and perhaps the
first to be accomplished in direct
collaboration with astronomers and scientists”

"Awe and wonder.
Two words that come to mind when I think about the spaceflight perspective. These two words immediately came to mind when I first, and every time, I listened to the music of The MOONS.
A powerful composition that will transport you through
space and bring you back to Earth!"
ISS Astronaut Nicole Stott
"Through the power of music, I wanted to create an inspiring work of art that
resonated with as many people as possible on the planet, but also deliver
a hopeful and uplifting message that is relevant to the plight of our world today.”
By combining artistic disciplines to produce works of great magnitude,
THE MOONS SYMPHONY is a result of collaborations with some of the
greatest scientific minds from lead space missions from
NASA, ESA, and world-class Space artists.
This production offers a unique visual and musical experience that
celebrates the mergence of music and science to
dramatize past, present and future moon explorations and provides a
new perspective of our OWN planet Earth"
AMANDA LEE FALKENBERG
Composer and Creator of THE MOONS SYMPHONY
"Working with and combining the enlightened experiences of astronauts with a musical tour and celebration of our galaxy,
we hope to recognize and celebrate EARTHRISE around the world, beginning with a WORLD premiere of,
THE MOONS SYMPHONY
with its planetary message to fill concert halls, outdoor stadiums and planetariums all across the World"
