In live performances from the Hollywood Bowl to New York’s Le Poisson Rouge, from Paris to Hong Kong, and in recordings for ECM, Bedroom Community, and Arabesque — Bruce Brubaker is the new musician, visionary virtuoso, artistic provocateur. Named “Young Musician of the Year” by Musical America, Bruce Brubaker performs Mozart with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and plays Philip Glass’s piano music around the world. Profiled on NBC’s Today show, Brubaker has performed with Meredith Monk, Nico Muhly, Lorraine Hunt, and John Cage. Brubaker is featured on Nico Muhly’s recording Drones.
“A big-toned, brainy, firebrand kind of music making that made you think of—dare one say this?—Rudolf Serkin.” — The Boston Globe
“Mr. Brubaker’s demeanor was calm, cheerful, optimistic—as though the idea of classical music vanishing into a virtual cloud of perpetual recombination didn’t bother him one bit.” — “The Post-Postmodern Pianist” in The New York Observer
