She has performed concertos by Mozart, Ravel and Saint-Saëns with the Boston Pops Orchestra, and by Bach, Schumann, Rachmaninoff, Hindemith, Berg, Boulez, and more, with ensembles that include the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Boston Modern Orchestra Project and the Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra. She has premiered music by Martin Brody, Peter Child, Alan Fletcher, John Harbison, Lee Hyla, Libby Larsen, Peter Lieberson, Salvatore Macchia, James Matheson, James Primosch, Eric Sawyer, and Donald Wheelock, among many others, and in 2015 she will record the solo piano works of Harbison for Bridge Records.

In concert and on recordings Gordon has collaborated with an exceptionally wide range of artists, among them singers Janice Felty, Mary Nessinger, Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, Lisa Saffer, William Hite, and James Maddalena; cellists Andres Diaz, Yo-Yo Ma, and Rhonda Rider; violists Cynthia Phelps, Marcus Thompson, and Roger Tapping; violinists Rose Mary Harbison, Movses Pogossian, and Andrew Kohji Taylor; flutists Fenwick Smith and Adam Kuenzel; pianists Robert Levin, and Peter Serkin, Imani Winds, and the Borromeo, Daedalus, and Lydian String Quartets.

Gordon studied with Patricia Zander at the New England Conservatory of Music, where she received the school's Outstanding Alumni Award in 2009, and appears as guest-artist and teacher at festivals such as Apple Hill, Bard, Bennington, and Charlottesville, at ChatterABQ in New Mexico, and in Washington County, New York, where she is a consulting director of Music from Salem. In 1997 she was named 'Musician of the Year' by the Boston Globe.
