Charlie Albright an American-born classical pianist, composer, and improviser. He graduated from Harvard College (B.A.) and the New England Conservatory (M.M.) as the first classical pianist in the schools’ five-year BA/MM Joint Program, was named the Leverett House Artist in Residence for 2011–2012, and was one of the 15 Most Interesting Seniors of the Harvard College Class of 2011. He graduated from the Juilliard School of Music with his post-graduate Artist Diploma (A.D.) in 2014.
A frequent collaborator with Yo-Yo Ma, Albright is an official Steinway Artist, Avery Fisher Grant Recipient, Gilmore Young Artist and former Young Concert Artist.
The New York Times hailed Charlie’s “jaw-dropping technique” and “virtuosity meshed with a distinctive musicality throughout” -review of his March 8, 2011 Merkin Hall Debut in New York City.
The Washington Post declared that “Albright is among the most gifted musicians of his generation” in a review of his debut at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on February 14, 2011.
The Philadelphia Inquirer published that “his personality was evident in his way of shaping a phrase with a kind of extravagance that had showmanship but never felt cheap. With a fresh, clean, crystalline sound, he played with a kind of ease and smoothness that refuses to airbrush the music, but animates it from within. [He] brought the art of classical-music improvisation to a new level.” Albright lives in New York City.
