Thomas Moore, a specialist in new music for the piano, has earned acclaim throughout the United States and Europe for his performances, lectures and recordings. His repertoire includes major works by John Cage, Morton Feldman, Christian Wolff, Charles Ives, Olivier Messiaen, James Tenney, Thomas DeLio, Wesley Fuller, Robert Gibson, Philip Glass, Erik Satie, Stuart Saunders Smith, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Iannis Xenakis, George Crumb, Yehuda Yannay and others. DeLio has called Moore, “An outstanding pianist whose sensitivity and intelligence shine through each of his performances — truly exceptional.”

In 1982 Moore won the Grand Prize of the International Piano Recording Competition for his recording of George Crumb’s Makrokosmos, Volume I, described by the jury as “Stunning, alive, intelligent and imaginative, transcending accuracy to and dedication to the score, becoming a truly theatrical and musical experience.”
