About Lisa Moore

Hello Everyone and a HUGE Welcome!
I want to share my musical and artistic world with you.
Please check out the SIX TIERS
of support I've created:

I'm missing people, live concerts and interacting with audiences. I know everyone's feeling the crunch, however in exchange for your support, depending on the tier, you can enjoy private on-line concerts, piano lessons, composer-performer workshops, mp3s, CDs, videos, rehearsal access, tips, insight, exchanging ideas, news, tickets, discounts, life-on-the-road experiences as well as tennis and bread* baking chats - if you want

Our 'new (getting old already) normal' begs for a new approach to 
- staying in touch with the people who value what we do
- sharing our continuing artistic work
- sustaining the community
and just
being together

Since the pandemic lockdowns began, when all our concerts vanished, I have been re-thinking and re-orienting what I can now offer the world. Rising to the challenges musicians are facing, (given no 'live' concerts on the horizon), I've been keeping myself pretty busy sharpening my online skills and tools. I have built a little home recording studio and taught myself how to record - audio, video, and photography. I've been making some music videos for composers that have been ‘keeping hope alive’ (through their loyal employment), while learning new works for longer term CD projects. I've given some online guest lectures and festival coachings, and I'm teaching piano and composition tips one-on-one via zoom through hireartists. I've also learned how to bake bread, prune roses, and refine my drop shots on court.

Basically, I am currently expanding my work, reaching deeper and further into a wider sphere on-line - mentoring, teaching, exploring new technology, new repertoire, new techniques, improvisation, composition, commissioning, recordings, videos, and (naturally) performance.
Over the last 4 decades I've been performing, commissioning, and recording music - as a classically trained pianist - often using my vocals, text and dramatic elements - mostly within the new and experimental side of the concert music business. I have collaborated with over 250 living composers and recorded more than 40 commercial albums. Having been around the world a few times and back, performing in venues of every shape and size with an incredible array of artists, I've experienced a very diverse range of music from the latest genre-busting creations 'hot off the press' to classical works by composers like Bach, Beethoven, Schumann, and Janáček.

It is quite intimidating at any time to ask for support, however, these times are unprecedented - with no concerts or tours for the foreseeable future. Patreon provides a vital support mechanism for artists and it will allow me to share the innovative and creative world we have built up over many years together - and want to continuePatreon enables me to keep going with what I do best. 

Thank you for considering supporting my work!
Any amount helps to keep it all going.

Here's my looong official bio (in case):

Lisa Moore’s playing has been singled out by The New York Times for its “life and freshness” and “fragility and tenderness”. Her performances combine music and theatre with expressive and emotional power – whether in the delivery of the simplest song, a solo recital, or a fiendish chamber score. Described as ‘the wonderfully lyrical pianist’ in TimeOut New York and ‘visionary’ in the The New Yorker, Pitchfork claims “she’s the best kind of contemporary classical musician, one so fearsomely game that she inspires composers to offer her their most wildly unplayable ideas”.

This multi-faceted pianist and avid collaborator won the silver medal in the 1981 Carnegie Hall International American Music Competition. Based in New York City since 1985, she has released 10 solo discs, ranging from Leoš Janáček to Philip Glass, and more than thirty collaborative discs (on labels: Cantaloupe, Tall Poppies, Orange Mountain, Irreverence Group Music, Bandcamp, Sony, Nonesuch, DG, BMG, New World, ABC Classics, Albany, New Albion, Starkland, Harmonia Mundi). Her 2016 disc The Stone People – featuring the music of John Luther Adams, Martin Bresnick, Missy Mazzoli, Kate Moore, Frederic Rzewski, and Julia Wolfe – was selected by The New York Times Top Classical Albums 2016 and Naxos Critics’ Choice 2017. Moore’s recording of Ishi’s Song by Martin Bresnick (Stone People CD) was ranked no.4 in the 2020 Naxos Best of Indie Classical. Her 2015 collaborative Steve Reich Music for Eighteen Musicians with Ensemble Signal made The New York Times Top Classical Albums 2015 list. Gramophone writes of her solo 2015 Mad Rush Philip Glass disc “what becomes abundantly clear from listening to almost any bar on this recording is Moore’s highly developed, intuitive and nuanced approach to this music, one which has been allowed to evolve and refine over a number of years”.

Lisa Moore was the founding pianist for the Bang On A Can All-Stars from 1992-2008 and, with them, the winner of Musical America’s 2005 Ensemble of the Year award. Given a special passion for the music of our time, she has worked with over 250 composers – including Iannis Xenakis, Elliot Carter, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Meredith Monk, Frederic Rzewski, Ornette Coleman, Jonny Greenwood, David Lang, Don Byron, Martin Bresnick, Elena Kats-Chernin, Paul Grabowski, Kate Neal, Thurston Moore, Missy Mazzoli, Hannah Lash, and Julia Wolfe.

Enjoying diverse collaborative projects throughout the globe, Lisa Moore has performed with a large range of musicians, ensembles and artists – the London Sinfonietta, Bang on a Can All-Stars, Steve Reich Ensemble, New York City Ballet, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and the American Composers Orchestra. She is a member of Grand Band, Ensemble Signal, Tempus Duo, TwoSense, and the Paul Dresher Double Duo.

Lisa Moore has played concertos with the London Sinfonietta, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Wesleyan University Orchestra with Sumarsam Gamelan, Albany Symphony, Sydney Symphony, Tasmania Symphony, La Jolla Symphony, Thai National Orchestra, Canberra Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Virtuosi, Monash Performing Arts Orchestra, Clocked Out, and the Queensland Philharmonic. She has performed under the batons of David Robertson, Leonard Bernstein, Bradley Lubman, Brett Dean, Richard Mills, Reinbert de Leeuw, Pierre Boulez, Jorge Mester, Benjamin Northey, Angel Gil-Ordonez, Steven Schick, and Edo de Waart.

Performing on some of the world’s great stages – La Scala, the Musikverein, the Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall, and the Royal Albert Hall — Lisa’s festival guest appearances include Lincoln Center, BAM Next Wave, Big Ears, Banff, Crash Dublin, Vienna, Graz, Trondheim, Rome, Venice, Palermo, Turin, Aspen, Tanglewood, Gilmore, Chautauqua, Huddersfield, Paris d’Automne, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, BBC Proms, Southbank, Uzbekistan, Leningrad, Moscow, Lithuania, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne Metropolis, Israel and Warsaw.

Lisa Moore has also enjoyed artistic curation. She produced Australia’s Canberra International Music Festival 2008 Sounds Alive series, importing artists from around the world for 10 days of events at the versatile Street Theatre.

Born in Australia, Lisa grew up in Canberra, London and Sydney. She began piano at age 6 and studied formally at the Sydney Conservatorium, University of Illinois, Eastman School of Music, SUNY Stonybrook, and in Paris with Yvonne Loriod-Messiaen. Based in New York City and New Haven Lisa teaches at Yale-Norfolk Summer Festival of Music New Music Workshop and has been a regular guest at the Australian Academy of Music, Melbourne.

Lisa Moore is a Steinway Artist.

Thank you for reading and for your considered support!

I hope to join with you here, or if not here, then somewhere down the road.

                                                     Stay well, stay safe and let's go!
