Gustav Hoyer, Peter Pejtsik, The Budapest Film Orchestra – Terra, the Bringer of Life (Spotify)

“-Terra, the Bringer of Life- is an excellent opportunity to plunge into the world of classical music in its true demonstration. The vast and varied compositional heritage of the XVIII century, where you can listen the orchestral concert performed by the virtuosos -Gustav Hoyer-, -Peter Pejtsik- and -The Budapest Film Orchestra-.”

“-Terra, the Bringer of Life- это отличная возможность окунуться в мир классической музыки в её истинном проявлении. Огромное и разнообразное композиторское наследие XVIII века, в котором вы сможете услышать виртуозный оркестровый концерт в исполнении -Gustav Hoyer-, -Peter Pejtsik- и -The Budapest Film Orchestra-.”

Standing at 7 minutes and 40 seconds, "Terra, The Bringer of Life" implements fervent violins and chimes to invoke the feeling of natural beauty on earth and the cycle of life, and mimic the musical elements of mother nature such as; flowing water, sprouting seeds, and flying birds. We are then given a quick glimpse of earth from the heavens with a beautiful melodic harp and flute section about one minute into the piece, which complements the overarching tone seamlessly.

The piece, though classical, is modern and relevant, which is not surprising given Gustav Hoyer's reputation as a prolific composer who is dedicated to giving "people a chance to experience this great art form in untraditional ways". He does this in multiple ways, and has recently been focusing on creating a virtual reality software that would allow a listener to not only watch a visualizer, but experience and immerse themselves into the music like never before. Though the VR platform isn't ready yet, you can still immerse yourself in the musical richness that is classical music through the new episodes of Gustav's podcast "Anachromism", were he focuses on slowing down and actively listening to music to get the best experience possible.

Gustav Hoyer – Innocence (Spotify)

“Crystal clear, airy, soft and magical orchestra sounds from another world, directly revealed from a real master. An epic Cinematic mix with targeted up and downs and excellent transitions. We consider "Innocence" among the pieces you should never miss.”

Gustav Hoyer, a Colorado-based classical composer, has interest in both classical music and technology. This combination has created a lifelong journey for both Gustav and his listeners. Founder of the Los Angeles-based Orchestra Unleashed, Hoyer has built a growing discography available for any person aiming to be transcended into an almost-cinematic universe.

His latest release, “Innocence” is the follow up to his glorious track “Adventure at Sea,” which made waves.

His abundance of strings in the song allows for the listener to be immediately captured by the story of the piece. The piece goes on to be a dynamic story, with beautiful themes and powerful horns. This piece immediately reminds me of Alexandre Desplat or Alan Silvestri, two composers known for creating an entire universe within their works.

His recorded music has been heard in film, on radio and in performances worldwide. He founded and directed the Los Angeles-based Orchestra Unleashed, dazzling audiences with a series of multimedia orchestral performances that reimagined the typical classical concert. Concurrently, Hoyer produced the original soundtrack for critically acclaimed stage epic “Acts, the Three Man Show.” His most recent album, “The Gilded Age,” included The Steampunk Serenade for a 40-piece string orchestra. Gustav Hoyer’s journey to become a classical music composer was certainly not scripted.
