The first woman to record Frederic Rzewsi's setting of Oscar Wilde's "De Profundis," Bang on a Can/Steve Reich pianist Lisa Moore sheds powerful new light on Wilde's jailhouse meditation on imprisonment, debasement, and the barriers that he faced as a homosexual. Rzewski, one of the great revolutionary American composers, has created an aggressively emotional soundtrack to Wilde's moving prose. "De Profundis" breaks down the boundaries between a piano recital and a theatrical experience. Written for a virtuosic pianist who also sings, shouts, and declaims, Rzewski's masterpiece is given a gripping re-interpretation by the fiery Moore, who brings a new character to the work through her passionate piano performance and compelling voice.

"Lisa Moore gave a startlingly good performance: she was lustrous at the keyboard, and at once engaging and challenging."
- Paul Griffiths in The New York Times, on hearing Moore perform De Profundis
