Performer's Website

Australian-American pianist Lisa Moore lives in New York City where she collaborates with a large and diverse range of musicians and artists. The New York Times says "her energy is illuminating" and the New Yorker magazine called her “visionary” and "New York's queen of avant-garde piano". Moore has released 5 solo discs (Cantaloupe and Tall Poppies labels) and 30 collaborative discs (Sony, Nonesuch, DG, CRI, BMG, Point, New World, ABC Classics, Albany and New Albion). Her latest solo recording "Seven" (music by Don Byron) has just been released on Cantaloupe. Two more solo Cantaloupe EPs are scheduled for release in 2010 featuring original music by composers Annie Gosfield and Donnacha Dennehy.

Lisa Moore's performances combine musical and emotional power -- whether in the delivery of the simplest song, the most challenging chamber work or complex solo score. She is passionately dedicated to the music of our time as well as the great musical canon. Moore has collaborated with composers from many musical genres -- Elliot Carter, Iannis Xenakis, Meredith Monk, Phillip Glass, Thurston Moore and Ornette Coleman to name just a few. Her wide-ranging repertoire spans from Robert Schumann, Leos Janacek and Modeste Mussorgsky to music and text settings by Randy Newman, Frederic Rzewski and Kurt Schwitters. Past solo shows include "ipiano: my brilliant career", "Wilde's World", "The Totally Wired Piano", "Janacek from the street" and "Musically Speaking". Moore has given concerts at La Scala, the Musikverein, the Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall and the Royal Albert Hall. She has made many guest appearances at festivals - The Holland, Lincoln Center, Schleswig-Holstein, BBC Proms, Israel, Warsaw, Uzbekistan, Musica Ficta Lithuania, Prague Spring, Istanbul, Athens, Taormina, Southbank's Meltdown, Dublin's Crash, Graz, Huddersfield, Scotia, Paris d'Automne, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Turin, Palermo, Barcelona, Heidelberg, Berlin, Perugia, Tanglewood, Houston Da Camera, Jacob's Pillow, Aspen, Norfolk, Sandpoint, Saratoga, Victoriaville, Ojai, Other Minds, NY's Sonic Boom, BAM Next Wave, MassMoca, Bang on a Can, Keys to the Future, Healing The Divide, Mizzou, Music 10 Blonay, Adelaide, Perth, Queensland, Canberra, Sydney, Sydney's Olympic Arts, Sydney Spring, Sydney Mostly Mozart, Brisbane Biennale, and the Darwin Festival.

As an artistic curator she most recently produced Australia's Canberra International Music Festival “Sounds Alive ‘08” series, importing musicians from around the world for 10 days of music making at the Street Theatre.
