He has performed the Barber, Bach E Major, Bruch G Minor and Mendelssohn Concertos, Bruch’s “Scottish Fantasy” and Miklos Rozsa’s Theme and Variations. In a previous review, Sterling Adams complimented Moore’s playing of Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy” as “notable for its beauty of tone and skillful negotiation of double stops, sweeping arpeggios, trills and runs . . . the exceptional technical demands of the second and final movements were met with masterful control.”
