Described by The New York Times as “lustrous at the keyboard, and at once engaging and challenging,” Australian-born pianist Lisa Moore‘s performances combine music and theater with expressive and emotional power. Moore is a contemporary classical musician who inspires composers to offer her their most wildly imaginative ideas. Her recital features the remarkable piano music of Philip Glass, one of the most influential music makers in the past century.

Described as “brilliant and searching…beautiful and impassioned…lustrous at the keyboard” by The New York Times, Lisa Moore’s performances combine music and theatre with expressive and emotional power – whether in the delivery of the simplest song, a solo recital or a fiendish chamber score. Pitchfork writes “She’s the best kind of contemporary classical musician, one so fearsomely game that she inspires composers to offer her their most wildly unplayable ideas”.
Lisa Moore has released 8 solo discs (Cantaloupe Music, Orange Mountain Music and Tall Poppies) and over 30 collaborative discs (Sony, Nonesuch, DG, CRI, BMG, Point, New World, ABC Classics, Albany, New Albion, Starkland and Harmonia Mundi). Her 9th solo disc is due out in the 2015-16 season (on Cantaloupe) featuring works by Martin Bresnick, John Luther Adams, Missy Mazzoli, Kate Moore and Julia Wolfe.
