new Rzewski album review in Arkivmusic

By |2022-10-24T04:49:13+11:00October 24th, 2022|Uncategorized|

“Pianist Lisa Moore has recorded the music of Frederic Rzewski in the past, but this 2022 release, recorded not long after Rzewski’s too-little-remarked death, makes a fine memorial to the composer. In general, Moore’s playing is beautifully attuned to Rzewski’s music, which has a kinship to minimalism in its use of repeated material […]

Review for Lisa’s Rome American Academy ‘salone’ concert

By |2022-10-04T00:31:54+11:00October 4th, 2022|Uncategorized|

Last night the pianist Lisa Moore performed a tightly curated, high impact program of solo piano music (and sometimes voice).  Each work had its own arc and internal organization, but what I found revelatory is the way the program as a whole told a bigger, cohesive story.  There was a definite left-leaning political edge to […]

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

By |2022-08-22T22:51:44+10:00August 22nd, 2022|Uncategorized|

“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.”

Wonderful Rzewski album review from VAN Magazine

By |2022-08-20T07:02:45+10:00August 20th, 2022|Uncategorized|

“There’s a parlor quality to Moore’s voice, almost a sprechstimmy interpretation of the lyrics, augmented by her innate warmth and emotional immediacy…. Moore’s lawless love for the work transforms it into nothing short of a sacrament, moving from Stockhausen-like austerity into Lisztian excess; it’s a passion play followed by transfiguration.”

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

By |2022-05-02T23:31:39+10:00May 2nd, 2022|Uncategorized|

 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.

By |2022-05-02T23:24:14+10:00May 2nd, 2022|Uncategorized|

“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 […]
