Martin Grubinger is a young percussionist who is pairing modern contemporary classical with traditional classical. Dubbed by critics as "a wizard of percussion", he has achieved the extraordinary feat of turning solo percussion into the highlight of the classical concert world. His broad repertoire and enthusiasm made him a great collaborator for Yuja Wang in a recent Carnegie Hall performance, playing to each other’s strengths. They both lassoed the audience and took them along for a musical tornado that left everyone gasping for more.
