Moore’s playing is meticulous when it comes to the compact three-act structure of the music (and its text); she hits the gas with a controlled force" ...“The lushness of some of its (Amoramaro) chords, though, is what strikes me most forcefully on repeat listens. And that’s thanks in part to Moore’s overall approach to Rzewski, which often allows for a greater range of emotion than other interpreters permit, including the composer."https://www.nytimes.com/2022/08/03/arts/music/lisa-moore-rzewski.html
