...conjures up an invisible ballet, returning the Movements to their heritage on the stage.

Russell Platt (The New Yorker)

It was pianist Eric Huebner who delivered the money moment, tossing off Gyorgy Ligeti's meteor shower of a Piano Concerto with such spectacular aplomb that all the ordinary virtuosity around it seemed like so much static noise.

Justin Davidson (Newsday)

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)

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

Raphael Bonitz (Lingener Tagespost)

In March 2016, he was featured in recital as part of the New York Philharmonic's "Messiaen Week" - a series of concerts featuring the work of the late French composer. Huebner 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. Recent solo recitals have featured the piano études of the late Hungarian composer György Ligeti and include appearances on the St. Louis Symphony's Pulitzer Arts Foundation Gallery series, at Bowling Green State University and the University of Michigan. 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.
