One of the leading American pianists of his generation, Eric Zuber has won major prizes in seven of the world's most prestigious international piano competitions: Cleveland, Arthur Rubinstein, Seoul, Sydney, Dublin, Minnesota, and Hilton Head. He was also recently awarded the Arthur Rubinstein Prize for his outstanding achievements by The Juilliard School.

Mr. Zuber has made appearances at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall, the Sydney Opera House, and Severance Hall. After making his orchestral debut at the age of twelve with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, he has gone on to perform with the Cleveland Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic, the Minnesota Symphony, the Korean Symphony, and Ireland's RTE National Symphony Orchestra among many others.

Zuber has captivated critics and audiences alike with his sensitive and insightful artistry. The New York Times' Allan Kozinn hailed his recital debut at Carnegie hall, calling his playing "irresistibly fluid," while applauding his "vividly crisp articulation" and "solid technique," while Donald Rosenberg of the Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote that Zuber's performance of Schumann and Liszt was "illuminating," and that he "wedded deeply poetic instincts with refined command of pianistic challenges."

Eric holds degrees from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University (B.M., A.D.), the Curtis Institute of Music (Diploma), and the Juilliard School (M.M). His major teachers have been Boris Slutsky, Leon Fleisher, Claude Frank, and Robert McDonald.
