Reviews of Désordre

"Mr. Huebner shows impeccable technique and musicality."
--American Record Guide

"Huebner puts his dazzling arsenal of abilities on full display, sculpting timescales and wielding rhythmic idiosyncrasies all with a veteran expertise and panache. His is a deft touch, keenly born of an exceptional musical ear and fine sense for textural expression (arguably a prerequisite in the successful interpretation of any piece by Ligeti)."
--The WholeNote

"Eric Huebner is particularly good at bringing out the details of this music."
--Fanfare

Devilishly brilliant playing...

...sensitivity and vigor...

Allan Kozinn (New York Times)

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)

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

Fred Kirshnit (NY Sun)

His playing is full of grace and light all through.

About

Eric Huebner, pianist

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 currently holds the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Piano Chair. He has been featured in orchestral works by Lindberg, Stravinsky, Ives, Milhaud, Carter and R. Strauss among others and regularly appears in chamber music performances with musicians from the Philharmonic at New York City's Merkin Hall and elsewhere. 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.
