Lisa Moore – piano (and vocals) performs sonically charged works from her 2 latest CDs The Stone People (Cantaloupe) and Mad Rush (OMM)
The Stone People made The New York Times Best Classical Albums list 2016. “If you spend the next few months with the music compiled here as companion, your life will be, if not necessarily happier or more prosperous, then at least more beautiful.” ‘THE STONE PEOPLE’ Lisa Moore, piano and voice (Cantaloupe Music). The occasion for this disc is an assemblage of John Luther Adams’s three works so far for solo acoustic piano, including the sweeping “Among Red Mountains.” Playing through these stark landscapes with tenderness, Ms. Moore has sensitively set Mr. Adams’s trio alongside similarly atmospheric, somber, often wintry pieces Martin Bresnick, Julia Wolfe, Missy Mazzoli and Kate Moore.” (Zachary Woolfe – The New York Times)

“Her piano playing is typically crisp and clear, its power coming directly from the score. This isn’t to say that she eschews interpretation and expression. On the contrary, she has been responsible for some of the most emotionally stirring piano recitals I’ve ever heard. But, with Moore, fidelity to the score is paramount, and here, in her Mad Rush Glass recordings, the music is presented in sleek, pristine performances that let the notes do the talking” — Andrew Ford – Inside Story, Australia
