Hailed as “among the most gifted musicians of his generation” with a “dazzling natural keyboard affinity” who “made quite an impression” by the Washington Post, American pianist/composer/improviser Charlie Albright has been praised for his “jaw-dropping technique and virtuosity meshed with a distinctive musicality” by The New York Times. Recipient of the prestigious 2014 Avery Fisher Career Grant and 2010 Gilmore Young Artist Award, Albright won the 2014 Ruhr Klavier Festival Young Artist Award presented by Marc-André Hamelin (Germany) and the 2009 Young Concert Artists International Auditions. His debut commercial recording, Vivace, has sold thousands of copies worldwide.
Albright’s 2015-2016 Season includes debuts at the Mostly Mozart Festival at New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (2 concerts); the Portland International Piano Festival (2 concerts); in solo concerts in Detroit, Houston, and San Antonio; and with the California, Des Moines, and Alabama Symphonies. In June of 2014, Albright debuted with the Houston Symphony performing the Gershwin Concerto. He also returns to perform with the Seattle Symphony, as well as the Gardner Museum in Boston to begin a second three-concert Themes and Variations series as a sequel to his critically acclaimed All-Schubert series in 2013, which will be commercially released in 2015.
