WORKS

 F E A T U R E D   R E V I E W S

PETROUSHKA DREAMS for clarinet, cello & piano 

“Made with great technical skill, formal elegance, attention to detail, economy of means, nobility of expression.”

Filippo Focosi, Kathodik

 

SHADOW TREE for alto flute & guitar

“Bilotta's lovely Shadow Tree is a particular pleasure to hear, with the rich throaty flute tones and a guitar part that is modern yet sounds completely natural.

Jon Davis, Expose

   

Shadow Tree pour flûte alto et guitare de Bilotta, un petit bijou de musique de chambre.”

François Couture, Monsieur Délire

ROSETTA'S STONE a neuroscience opera

"Rosetta's Stone explores a music teacher's decline into Alzheimer's. Bilotta was startling in this scene, where compassion vied with a chilling descent into age and illness."

Adam Broner, Repeat Performances

SONG OF THE HERMIT THRUSH

for soprano & chamber ensemble

"Exquisite"

Gramaphone

   

"...elegiacally juxtaposes the pain of mortal life with the hope of enduring nature... Sarita Cannon's captivating voice floated above the ensemble with such calm clarity that it made Bilotta's work my personal favorite..."
Jessica Balik, San Francisco Classical Voice

SOLEDAD

for flute & violin

"John G. Bilotta's Soledad for flute (Zachariah Galatis) and violin (Emily Cole) turned things inward with a reflective and almost desolate melancholy that was calming and appealing."

James Bash, Oregon ArtsWatch
