Moore performs solos, and duos with Lloyd Van’t Hoff clarinet

Blending the warm, rich energy of piano and clarinet, the cross-continental Australian-born duo CRUX present “Finding Home” – a program that shines an open light on questions of voice, place, environment, and landscape. New York’s multifaceted keyboardist and vocalist Lisa Moore and Australian woodwind virtuoso Lloyd Van’t Hoff perform solos and duos – ranging from original American and Australian works with text, backing tracks, and acoustic chamber works. They include both Detroit and World Premieres of new works, including “Rituals” by the Detroit-born composer Harriet Steinke, Meadow Bridgham’s “Seventeen Years – the life cycle of a cicada”, Nick Russoniello’s “Dawn Searching”, and a new arrangement  of “Mayn Rue Plats” by Martin Bresnick. The program also includes a new rendition of New York Counterpoint by Steve Reich, Anne Cawrse’s “This Too Shall Pass”, Randy Newman’s song “I think it’s going to rain today” and “To His Coy Mistress” – a song composed by Frederic Rzewski and featured on Moore’s recent album ‘no place to go but around’.
