5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden star Oct. 19 2010
An original musician from Canada, worked with so many famous singers, yet remains relatively unknown to so many...

I was invited to a small dinner party, this disc was one of several discs in the CD player, but it's got my attention immediately at first hearing...now I rarely go and get a CD before studying it and making sure that it is worth the money, but I didn't think twice about buying this one...

A German friend of mine who plays the drums in a rock band, was going through my music library and played this disc, he was impressed, and I was surprised that this kind of music got his attention...so there you go...

5.0 out of 5 stars Moccio in his element on Exposure June 29 2012
Verified Purchase
Stephan Moccio produced Exposure, his first CD, in 2006. At that time, although he was a successful musical artist, he was feeling a need to simplify things. He talked about wanting to hear himself think and wanting to hear his own rhythms. His desire to do things honestly and to get back to basics resulted in Exposure. This evocative recording contains 22 original piano solos.

Music is always open to interpretation, but, at times, the emotional core is not easily defined. Moccio's composing on Exposure is fairly accessible, thanks, in part, to the accompanying booklet which contains poems he has written about each piece. The songs capture the underlying emotions of sorrow, pain, longing, hope and love.

I have many favorites on this album. The stripped down version of "October" is featured on Exposure (the song is revisited, with orchestration, on Color and Elements). This track is about rebirth and new beginnings and I enjoy it more each time I hear it. There is a heaviness in "Ow" and the sadness expressed is both haunting and hypnotic. In contrast, there is a lightness in "Porcelain". As the name suggests, this is a delicate piece which reminds us of the fragility of life. Moccio has spoken of visiting the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris and feeling the spirit of the artists buried there. This led to the spiritual quality contained in "Mojo". He has also spoken of being influenced by the great music and the great harmonies of the Church. This seems evident in "David's Whisper". There is a sacred music feel to this song, and the quietness within is exquisite. "Carrie" captivated me from the first few notes. I felt a whisper, an awareness, then my breath was taken away. The sweet, sweet melody in "Cadeau" moves me to tears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music June 6 2011
My husband heard this album during one of his yoga classes and asked for it as a birthday gift. Now it's one of my favourites also. Mr. Moccio's piano pieces really move you - I highly recommend this album to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars From MainlyPiano.com May 7 2007
By Kathy Parsons - Published on Amazon.com
Although Canada's Stephan Moccio has been writing songs for a very impressive list of superstars for years, "Exposure" is his debut as a solo artist. Moccio's passionate and evocative composing and playing styles are accessible and easy to understand, but deepen and reveal new things with each listen. I fully expect "Exposure" to be on my favorite CDs list for the year. The twenty-two original piano solos came from a desire to capture a snapshot of the composer's life so far, and Moccio says he "needed to return to the simplicity of the instrument I know best." Lucky us, as listeners! I listen to a LOT of piano CDs, and this one has captivated me. The accompanying booklet with photos and brief poems about each piece makes this a most impressive package. Moccio's music is very classical at times and more ambient at others, combining his classical and pop music backgrounds to appeal to a broad audience while keeping his unique musical voice. I loved "Exposure" the first time I heard it, and seems to get even better the more I listen to it.

"Exposure" begins with "October," a piece about passion, enlightenment, and the rebirth of direction. Flowing and dreamy, this is a gorgeous way for Moccio to introduce himself. (A video of Moccio playing "October" is available for viewing on MySpace and YouTube.) One of my favorite tracks is "Ow," an almost wrenching piece about pain and sadness. The emotional power conveyed with a minimum number of notes is stunning. "Ow" segues into "Zephyr," which brings us out of despair with a feeling of hope. "Porcelain" is delicate and fragile, referring to the innocence of a mother and child sleeping face to face. "Mojo" is another dark, somber bit of soul-searching that flows into "David's Whisper," an anthem that lightens the mood considerably. "Nu" is a very poignant piece about feeling alone and misunderstood. Another favorite is "Sirens," with its bittersweet melody on the right hand and an energetic, flowing rhythm on the left. What a great piece! "Hudson" has a gentle flow, and reflects on life as well as the beauty of the river. "Seven" concludes this outstanding collection with a warm, tender piece about the wonder of birth.

"Exposure" is an auspicious debut by Stephan Moccio, and is hopefully only the beginning of an outstanding career as a solo artist. I give "Exposure" my highest recommendation!

By Elizabethcmorgan - Published on Amazon.com

Sometimes you purchase a CD because of ONE song and then when you receive it, it's the only good song. That's not true with this CD. Every single song is wonderful! What a gifted musician is Stephan Moccio! I'm a writer and having music is very important to me. This CD did wonders for my work. Don't hesitate to purchase this one. It will be a favorite!

5.0 out of 5 stars Prettiest piano music ever heard April 12 2011
By James Scudder - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Have played piano for almost 30 years and listen to just about all types of music. His style shows that its not the number of notes or complexity but the combination of notes and feeling with which is played. This is the most enjoyable beautiful piano music have ever listened to. Simple but overpowering. Would give it 6 stars if could.
