5 star review in The Australian for Moore’s new album

“Moore reveals the gamut of her artistry, from the Bjork-like delivery of Andrew Marvell poetry to the thunderous battering of her hapless Steinway. Here, Moore’s music is never less than dazzling and breathtaking, offering a take-no-prisoners manifesto that is urgent, vital life-affirming.”

A nice Los Angeles Times mention for Lisa’s Rzewski Appreciation concert at Zipper Hall, presented by PianoSpheres

 Two guest pianists were on hand with works written for them in 2020. Rzewski cultivated the reputation of a curmudgeon, but as Lisa Moore showed in “Amoramaro” and Ursula Oppens in “Friendship,” the composer lovingly captured feistiness in the former and profound strength and musicality in the latter. A longtime champion of Rzewski, Oppens made […]

A lovely “Fanfare” review for Lisa’s Kitzke recording.

“The two brave soloists not only sing, but whistle, speak, and play percussion. The first piece was commissioned by the clearly multi-talented Lisa Moore, who performs it here with astonishing verve. Kitzke’s music bristles with polystylism: one moment jazz, one moment contemporary, the next a quote or near-quote. Bringing Roses […]
