Our Evenings is a journey through worlds of imagery, memory, intimacy and song.
Pianist Lisa Moore presents piano miniatures, etudes, preludes and works of extraordinary beauty and emotional power – music composed by some of our most beloved composers.
This ‘wonderfully lyrical pianist’ (Time Out NY) guides the listener across a tableau of expressive romanticism into the bold modern era, performing music by Schumann, Janácek, Debussy, Scriabin, Philip Glass (for his 80th birthday) and a new work from her latest CD The Stone People – “Sliabh Beagh” by Australia’s Kate Moore (for a singing pianist).
