Lisa Moore

Australian pianist Lisa Moore, described by The New York Times as “brilliant and searching” and by The New Yorker as “New York’s queen of avant-garde piano,” has collaborated with a large and diverse range of musicians and artists, from classical orchestras and ballets to new music ensembles. From 1992 to 2008, she was the founding pianist for the Bang On A Can All-Stars, and has premiered over 200 works. Moore has released ten solo CDs and more than 30 ensemble CDs on a variety of labels to much acclaim. Finally, as an artistic curator she designed Australia’s Canberra International Music Festival Sounds Alive ’08 series.

Moore spends a week each summer at the Yale Summer School of Music/Norfolk Chamber Music Festival as a piano coach for the New Music Workshop. Outside of Yale, she is also a regular guest at the Australian National Academy of Music in Melbourne.
