Lisa Moore - Our Evenings

Lisa Moore

Details

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

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre
