Dubbed “New York’s queen of avant-garde piano” by The New Yorker, visionary Australian concert pianist Lisa Moore returns to the Sydney Opera House with a fascinating program celebrating the music of birds and bugs from the Romantic period to the 21st century.

Marvel at the plants and birds of Robert Schumann’s tranquil Forest Scenes alongside selections from Leoš Janáček’s evocative On an Overgrown Path, Béla Bartók’s quirky From the Diary of a Fly and Alexander Scriabin’s trilling ‘Insects’ Sonata. A champion of contemporary music and living composers, Moore pairs these classics of the 19th and 20th centuries with music by living composers: the legendary Philip Glass – his Kafka-inspired Metamorphosis II – Australia’s own Elena Kats-Chernin and American experimental composers Martin Bresnick and Meadow Bridgham.
