It is...his playing of three movements from Stravinsky’s Petrouchka that really tempts one to reach for superlatives...His clarity and endurance are truly impressive...impish energy and mysticism...a brilliant performance.

Alex Baron (The Whole Note magazine)

The work's playful dialogue of recurring sonorities depended on an ability to differentiate several distinct dynamic levels, a feat in which Huebner was masterfully precise.

Kyle Gann (Village Voice)

Soloist Eric Huebner reminded of the days when [Messiaen’s] wife, Yvonne Loriod, used to take the piano part.

Fred Kirshnit (NY Sun)

Phenomenal young pianist…a Most Valuable Player on the New York new-music scene…dazzling and exhilarating.

Alan Rich (LA Weekly)

Ingenious interpreter of new music...technical maturity...

Raphael Bonitz (Lingener Tagespost)
