Melbourne, Australia (Glass Piano Works with Lisa Moore)

April 20, 2017


Thursday 20 April 2017 6pm


This concert is set in-the-round. Seating in the Salon is general admission.

Our Evenings is a journey through worlds of imagery, memory, intimacy and song.
‘Ms. Moore phrased with a breathlike lyricism…she showed her capacity for illuminating character, most vividly in a haughty, preening Vogel als Prophet.’ The New York Times

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 Lisa’s Mad Rush CD) and a new work from her latest CD The Stone People – ‘Sliabh Beagh’ by Australia’s Kate Moore (for a singing pianist).
