Brubaker was one of the first solo pianists to play the music of Philip Glass. The New York Times wrote: “Few pianists approach Philip Glass’s music with the level of devotion and insight that Bruce Brubaker brings to it, precisely the reason he gets so much expressivity out of it.” In his continuing performances, from the Hollywood Bowl, and New York’s David Geffen Hall, to France’s International Piano Festival at La Roque d’Anthéron — Bruce Brubaker is a visionary virtuoso, and an artistic provocateur.
