Regular readers of this site should be familiar with the name of Australian pianist Lisa Moore. While she is based in New York City, she is the pianist for the Paul Dresher Ensemble Double Duo. She and violinist Karen Bentley Pollick constitute the “acoustic duo” in this group, complemented by Paul Dresher and Joel Davel, both of whom perform on electronic instruments.

In a little over a week, Moore will give a solo recital at the Center for New Music (C4NM). The title of the program will be From Me To You; and it will consist of “existential works for a vocalizing pianist.” The major composition on the program will be Frederic Rzewski’s “De Profundis,” which requires that the pianist recite excerpts from the letters Oscar Wilde wrote to Lord Alfred Douglas while incarcerated in Reading Gaol. Other composers to be included on the program (which is subject to change) are Philip Glass (“Mad Rush”), Martin Bresnick (“Ishi’s Song”), William Gardiner (“Little Room”), Randy Newman (“I Think It’s Going to Rain Today”), and Brett Dean (“Equality and Prayer,” with a text by Michael Leunig).

C4NM is located at 55 Taylor Street, about half of block north of the corner of Market Street (on the west side). Moore’s recital, which is being curated by Linda Bouchard in conjunction with NEXMAP (New Experimental Music, Art, Production), will begin at 3 p.m. on July 20. Tickets are $15 with a $10 rate for members. Information about membership may be found on the Membership Web page of the C4NM Web site. There is also an event page with further information about Moore.
