"Pixeliance (2011/2017) by Peri Mauer presented a one-movement dance for flute, harp, and marimba. Patricia Spencer’s flute dominated the dance steps while Jon Clancy’s percussion grounded the rhythm as Sara Cutler’s plucking at harp delivered a spiritual dimension to the dance." - Kevin McEneaney, The Millbrook Independent.

RED SKY, for concert band, PERI MAUER Composer. Spring Musicale, June 11, 2014, Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and the Perming Arts Junior Band. “The centerpiece of the program was a commissioned work for the band by composer Peri Mauer, called Red Sky, conducted by Dr. Richard Titone. Ms. Mauer orchestrated her prior work for solo trumpet of that name and revised it for a full ensemble. It was technically challenging, but the young musicians rose to the occasion after diligent rehearsals... Ye Huang, clarinet, and Hao Wang and Brandon Papaleo, trombones, were the soloists, and In the Brilliance of the Afternoon Sun. I find it an exciting and invigorating piece that is excellently well-written. The piece got deserved and enthusiastic applause from the audience.” Mark W.

"Following, was the ?rst performance of Peri Mauer’s At Home with Allen Ginsberg, a song cycle inspired by Ginsberg’s readings of his own poetry. The ?ve evocative songs – including the dramatic “Sunset”, recounting the moving premature death of a young son – were brought to unique life by Daniel Neer’s expressive and dynamic baritone paired with Christopher Berg’s skillful ?ow at the piano." ~ Ted Gorodetzky THE GLASS

April 6, 2011 at 4:16pm Review: Mark Greenfest - freelance contributor, New Music Connoisseur April 5, 2011 Blogarhythm, composed and conducted by Peri Mauer, opened the Music With a View program, Mad Chatters, at the Flea Theater, Friday, April 1, 2011 at 7 pm. Curated by Kathleen Supove, the festival featured different themes - this piece was an entirely acoustic piece, commenting on the wired electronic age, and the composition, Blogarhythm, had its own ensemble, with 24 professional musicians, all volunteering, including contralto Christina Ascher, flutists Pamela Sklar, Hugh Williams, and Michael Laderman, clarinetist Gwen Appel, Ms. Supove as pianist, and other noted and talented performers, including five cellists. The piece opened with an enormous wavelike crescendo, arching together the polyrthyms of multiple musical lines, in one energetic gesture - Ms. Mauer sai

Music Review: Kerwin Williamson Studio Phoenix Blogspot Peri Mauer DUTCHESS STARLIGHT REVISITED Composers Concordance Festival 2012 DROM, NYC January 29, 2012 Dutchess Starlight Revisited by Peri Mauer/cello, with Elliott Sharp/guitar and Art Baron/trombone, was a beautiful piece that exuded a sharp tenderness matched only by its near perfect arrangement. The combination of the three musicians brought out the joy and heartache of the composition, its notes reverberating in the air like ripples on the surface of a pond. Peri's playing was superb, her cello hummed with the gentle yet powerful vibration of her soul. - Kerwin Williamson Studio Phoenix Blogspot

Life on Earth, for chamber orchestra Peri Mauer – composer, conductor, cellist Music With a View 2013 Flea Theater, NYC June 19, 2013 Review by Sandra Coffin I consider myself fortunate to have been a part of the performance of Peri Mauer’s Life On Earth in Music With a View 2013, June 19th at The Flea Theater in Tribeca. The foundation of the piece is a series of structured solos and duets, interspersed with background free improvisations by individuals and groups of instrumentalists using melodic and rhythmic motifs found in the structured sections. The material is beautifully written, with expressive melodies and intricately woven rhythmic subtleties. The solo parts vary, depicting different moods and times of day. The overall effect is of major events taking place amidst a constant stream of small ordinary happenings, all based on the same short motifs. Ms. Mauer both played cello and conducted, shaping sections between the major events for a range of tone colors and dynamics.

Peri Mauer: Illuminations of the Night premiere New York Repertory Orchestra David Leibowitz, conductor The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, NYC Saturday, May 18th, 2013 Written by Scottie Roche Have you ever stayed up all night in the company of Manhattan? Really taken in her nightly refusal to slumber. Her lights flash bright gashes into the tenebrous night. She punctures the darkness with the polychromatic twinklings of an unwillingness to rest. Peri Mauer’s Illuminations of the Night is evocative of such nights. The piece received its shining world premiere by the New York Repertory Orchestra on Saturday night in a program that also included Debussy’s Three Nocturnes and Sibelius’s Violin Concerto in D minor. The concert took place at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin just a few feet from one of New York’s greatest light shows, Times Square. Mauer’s musical nightscape pulses with the insistent rhythms and syncopated energies of late night New York. She offers up a vision of New Y

"The program opened boldly with the world premiere of Peri Mauer’s Illuminations of the Night, a work drawing its inspiration from observations by the composer of changes in the city as she often worked through the night composing. Not surprisingly, this Manhattan cityscape even alludes to such familiar urban night sounds as garbage trucks and passing sirens, as well as serene and suspended interludes of relative quiet. The orchestration was expert, and the formal structure of the piece clearly defined. Beginning dramatically with aggressive brass and percussion, such challenging statements gave way to a beautifully transparent interlude before the city seemed once again to awaken in all its vitality. A less reverberant acoustic would undoubtedly reveal much detail that was unavoidably blurred at this hearing. But, the commitment of the players and the enthusiastic reception by the listeners should fully justify conductor Leibowitz’s decision to include something totally new as grist

The New York Repertory Orchestra proudly presents its 2012-13 season finale featuring a world premiere by Peri Mauer alongside works by Jean Sibelius and Claude Debussy. Led by conductor David Leibowitz, the concert features guest artist, violinist Airi Yoshioka, and takes place on Saturday, May 18th at 8pm at The Church of St. Mary the Virgin in Times Square. "When I began composing ILLUMINATIONS OF THE NIGHT I lived in a studio apartment 28 floors above midtown Manhattan with my piano facing my window. As a night person, my work habits and creative energy had me composing far into the night, as I watched the changing view of lights of the city night dance against the backdrop of darkened streets and sky. Often I composed all night until the sun came up. The sound of awakening traffic initiated by the low-pitched screeching of garbage trucks making their early morning rounds signaled that it was time to go to sleep.

Music Review (excerpt)-David M. Abrams Peri Mauer NUDIBRANCH FRIDAY, for violin and cello Bargemusic Here and Now September 20, 2012 The duo of Curtis Stewart, first violinist, and Amanda Gookin, cello, of the PUBLIQuartet then played composer Peri Mauer’s fascinating Nudibranch Friday. In her introductory comment, Ms. Mauer explained that nudibranch, shell-less marine mollusks that comprise the sea slugs, are characterized by fascinating shapes and intriguing patterns and their intricate color and form inspired her to compose this wonderful duo . The piece is made up of 7 continuous sections, each based on a different nudibranch. Violinist Curtis Stewart has a warm, clear sound and sparkling rhythmic energy and cellist Amanda Gookin has a deep, rich tone and a lovely rubato that enriched both the slow and fast sections of Ms. Mauer’s unusual composition. Peri Mauer’s innovative compositions are at the forefront of contemporary music, and Nudibranch Friday is clearly one of her most

La Folia Online Music Review (Excerpt) A New Music Concert in St. Peter’s Church "Morning Night and Noon for two clarinets by Peri Mauer stood out as appealing and original. Ismail Lumanovski and Vaski Dukovski reacted to each other and to the music with imagination and energy. In Night one truly felt midnight’s eerie darkness. Her portrayal of the composer David Noon (Ms. Mauer’s former teacher) was vibrantly eccentric and electrically charged. The music displayed creativity throughout the triptych."
