…“Moser is a sublime and powerful musician who has the innate ability to draw things out of expert players that you haven’t heard them do before.……The pianist has a complete and focused command of the instrument that allows her to blur the distinctions between the kinetic-energy of “outside” playing and the more lyrical propulsion of “inside” music. At the center of it all is a remarkable mastery of rhythmic dynamics.”Robert Bush, San Diego Reader, July 22, 2012
