He is the author of two books, Intertextuality in Western Art Music (2004), and Music and the Crises of the Modern Subject (2015). Both books are published by Indiana University Press; the latter book concerns Lacan’s theory of subjectivity and its implications for music.

His most recent publication, “Chopin Fragments: Narrative Voice in the First Ballade” (Nineteenth-Century Music) considers the problem of the narrator in music and other
media. His article “Chopin’s Fourth Ballade as Musical Narrative” (Music Theory Spectrum) received the publication of the year award from the Society for Music Theory in 2005. He is currently writing a book on Chopin and posthumanism

The Mosertrio has recently won the 2nd Prize at the "3rd AEMC international chamber music competition". The trio is formed by three siblings: Florian (violin), Sarah (cello) and Lukas Moser (piano). Based in Salzburg, Austria, they had their debut in 2018, when they performed Beethoven's
Triple Concerto with the Salzburg Philharmonic Orchestra. Since 2020 they have been studying at the Mozarteum with 
Biliana Tzinlikovah. They also like to explore music outside the
traditional paths, feeling at home in contemporary music as well as jazz and improvisation. At the AEMC conference, they are scheduled to perform Chopin's Trio op. 8
