Gregor Huebner News

Dear Friends,

I recorded 5 solo piano pieces and created an EP called, “Musical Stories from the NY Slowdown.” You can purchase the album or individual tracks on Bandcamp. I added a bunch of new tracks and albums to Bandcamp. On Friday, May 1, they are not charging artists, so Friday is a perfect day to purchase my music.

Also on Friday, May 1 at 7 pm ET, Watch the Premiere of the Music Video for Hilary Tann’s “And The Snow Did Lie.” The arty video features Sirius Quartet, plus the lithographs by André Bergeron that inspired the piece.

On Sunday, May 3 at 5pm ET join me for Speedwell Live, a real-time conversation with Maine writer Bill Roorbach. I’ll play music and discuss my current projects. Sign up to receive the Zoom link and password by email on the day of event.

Lastly, violinist Fung Chern Hwei and I teamed up to create a violin duo, Orthrus. Our very first single, “Escape From Reality”, will be on Bandcamp.


P.S. Watch my most recent solo piano video Lullaby, produced by Fung Chern Hwei. SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel to keep up-to-date on new music and videos.
