Lisa Moore

Described as “beautiful and impassioned” (The New York Times) Lisa Moore’s playing combines music, theatre and emotional power - whether in the delivery of the simplest song, a solo show or the most challenging chamber score. 

Crowned "New York's queen of avant-garde piano" (The New Yorker) the Australian pianist has performed with a large and diverse range of musicians – the London Sinfonietta, Bang on a Can, Steve Reich Ensemble, New York City Ballet, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, American Composers Orchestra, So Percussion, Signal, Australian Chamber Orchestra, TwoSense and the Paul Dresher Double Duo. Moore’s festival performances include Lincoln Center, BAM, Crash, Graz, Tanglewood, Huddersfield, Paris d'Automne, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, BBC Proms, Southbank, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Israel and Warsaw.

She has released 6 solo discs (Cantaloupe, Tall Poppies) and over 30 collaborative discs (Sony, Nonesuch, DG, BMG, New World, ABC Classics, Albany, New Albion). From 1992-2008 Lisa Moore was the founding pianist for the electro-acoustic sextet Bang On A Can All-Stars - winner of Musical America's 2005 Ensemble of the Year Award. She has collaborated with composers ranging from Iannis Xenakis, Elliot Carter and Ornette Coleman to Meredith Monk, Phillip Glass and Frederic Rzewski. As an artistic curator Moore produced Australia's Canberra International Music Festival Sounds Alive ‘08 series. Moore teaches at the Yale-Norfolk Summer Festival and at Wesleyan University.
