Eric Huebner


Pianist Eric Huebner has drawn world-wide acclaim for his performances of new and traditional music since making his debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at age 17. His playing has been described as “full of grace and light” by critic Paul Griffiths and “masterfully precise” by Village Voice critic Kyle Gann.  He was recently referred to as “the new superstar” of the 2008 Ojai Festival by critic Alan Rich where he performed solo music of Carter and Ligeti.
