Pianist Lisa Moore launches her OMM (Orange Mountain Music) disc of solo piano music by Philip Glass. Works include Mad Rush, Metamorphosis, Etudes (selected), Satyagraha Conclusion Act 3, Closing.
as part of The LPR (New)Classical Series
“The piano music of Philip Glass is hypnotic, timeless, clear and beautiful. As a performer the possibilities for creating colors in Philip’s music are infinite – his melodies, sonorous harmonies and formal structures allow room for individual interpretation and expression. Back in 2006, while on tour with Philip Glass and the Bang on a Can All-Stars, I began to feel a growing connection to Philip – both as a person and composer of universal, mesmerizing, ritualistic music. I was moved and began to study and perform his works in my own solo shows. During the summer of 2014 Orange Mountain Music (Glass’ official label) offered me the chance to record a CD featuring the classic Glass piano repertoire. My January 13 night at (le) poisson rouge will be the official release and launch of this recording – it’s called Mad Rush. Please join me to witness and celebrate the birth of this OMM recording.” – Lisa Moore
