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 and improviser Charlie Albright is a winner of the Avery Fisher Career Grant and Gilmore Young Artist award, as well as a mountain of other accolades.
Those of you who heard this gifted young man on one of his two earlier appearances on Music Mondays know how he astounded everyone with his performances of both classical music and surprise presentation of "Great Balls of Fire." His improvisational skills, based on musical notes provided by the audience seem unequalled in their originality and musical structure and have been likened to "the great Romantic-era composer-pianists" by Classical Source.
Since that time he has appeared in Carnegie Hall with the American Symphony Orchestra, Bergen International Festival in Norway, and the Newport Music Festival, as well as other important venues around the world.
