In live performances from the Hollywood Bowl to New York’s Le Poisson Rouge, from Hong Kong to the International Piano Festival at La Roque d’Anthéron in Provence, and in recordings for ECM, InFiné, 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 album Drones.[vimeo 129655840 w=620&h=300]
Brubaker’s album “Glass Piano” is a sublime collection of solo piano versions of Philip Glass. Bruce Brubaker’s forte is understanding and reinterpreting Glass’ music. He has cultivated an intense relationship with Glass’ compositions and has met the composer on many occasions to discuss the reworks, instilling a deep understanding for Brubaker of Glass’ innermost intentions and idiosyncrasies.
“The listener rises to another level of consciousness … a sensory and temporal musical experience, lacking the contingencies of reality … a hypnotic adventure.” — Ouest France
