Description

Lisa Moore (New York based Australian pianist)

‘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’ (Pitchfork Magazine)

A performance, conversation, and masterclass by/with acclaimed Australian piano player Lisa Moore. Interviewed by Sonya Lifschitz. Including performances by UNSW music students.

The New York Times writes ‘Lisa Moore, an Australian pianist long based in and around New York, has always been a natural, compelling storyteller’ while TimeOut NY describes her as ‘the wonderfully lyrical pianist’. Lisa Moore has ten solo discs (Cantaloupe, Orange Mountain Music, IGM, Bandcamp, Tall Poppies) ranging from Leoš Janáçek to Philip Glass. Her 2016 disc The Stone People (Cantaloupe) – featuring the music of John Luther Adams, Martin Bresnick, Missy Mazzoli, Kate Moore, Frederic Rzewski, and Julia Wolfe – made both The New York Times Top Classical Albums of 2016 list and the 2017 Naxos Critics’ Choice. Lisa Moore has recorded over thirty collaborative discs (Sony, Nonesuch, DG, BMG, New World, ABC Classics, Albany, New Albion, Starkland, Harmonia Mundi). She has performed with a diverse range of musicians and artists – the London Sinfonietta, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, New York City Ballet, Bang on a Can All-Stars, Steve Reich Ensemble, American Composers Orchestra, So Percussion, Ensemble Signal, Australian Chamber Orchestra, TwoSense, Grand Band, and the Paul Dresher Double Duo.

Interviewer: Dr Sonya Lifschitz, Lecturer at UNSW, School of Arts & Media, pianist.
