Tim Smith, music critic for The Baltimore Sun, reviewed a performance by Eric Zuber (BM ’05, AD ’09, Piano) with the Concert Artists of Baltimore.
From the review:
The Saint-Saens concerto veers wildly in mood and character, and calls for correspondingly varied tone colors from the pianist. Zuber, who counts among his teachers Leon Fleisher and Boris Slutsky, easily revealed the necessary technical chops. He maintained admirable clarity of articulation, even while tearing through the finale at a wonderful clip, and he summoned abundant drama for the concerto’s opening homage to Bach.
Zuber, a Preparatory and Conservatory alumnus who is currently a DMA candidate studying with Boris Slutsky, will be one of 30 participants in the International Van Cliburn Competition.
