"This is an excellent recording, with the Carter and Stravinsky particularly fine." - Clavier Companion, January 2016
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.
Devilishly brilliant playing...
Phenomenal young pianist…a Most Valuable Player on the New York new-music scene…dazzling and exhilarating.
His playing is full of grace and light all through.
...sensitivity and vigor...
Pianist Eric Huebner has drawn worldwide acclaim for his performances of new and traditional music since making his debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at age 17. In January 2012, he was appointed pianist of the New York Philharmonic and has been featured in works by Lindberg, Stravinsky, Ives, Milhaud, Carter and R. Strauss among others. In March 2016, he was featured in recital as part of the New York Philharmonic's "Messiaen Week" - a series concerts featuring the work of the late French composer. Other recent solo projects include a complete performance in November 2016 of György Ligeti's piano études on the St. Louis Symphony's contemporary music series held at the Putlizer Arts Foundation gallery in St. Louis. He has collaborated with the conductor David Robertson in performances of György Ligeti’s Piano Concerto, Olivier Messiaen’s Oiseaux Exotiques and on the American premiere with percussionist Colin Currie of Elliott Carter's Two Controversies and a Conversation for piano, percussion and chamber ensemble. From 2001 through 2012, Huebner was a member of Antares, a quartet comprised of clarinet, violin, cello and piano. First prize winners of the 2002 Concert Artists Guild International Competition, Antares appeared regularly in major chamber music venues throughout the United States and worked closely with many composers on the commissioning of new works for its combination.
