Neighborhood Concert: Lisa Moore, Solo Piano
LaGuardia Performing Arts Center
To see Lisa Moore perform is to be ushered into a world of mesmerizing theatricality and compelling emotional power. “New York’s queen of avant-garde piano” (The New Yorker), Moore is an Australian long based in and around New York, carving a niche for herself in the city’s vibrant new music scene. She was the founding pianist for the revolutionary and wildly entertaining ensemble Bang on a Can All-Stars, and has collaborated with the world’s most famous composers, including Iannis Xenakis, Elliott Carter, Ornette Coleman, and Meredith Monk.
This concert is part of American Mavericks, a citywide celebration of the pioneers of the American sound, presented by Carnegie Hall and San Francisco Symphony. Visit carnegiehall.org/mavericks for more information.
