Information

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)

Devilishly brilliant playing...

Alex Ross (Twitter)

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)

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

Alan Rich (LA Weekly)

...equal parts grace, precision and eloquence.
