Deubner's strong tone, especially in the thin upper register, is notably exploited in these two concertos, but it is the warmth and body of texture he draws from his instrument makes compelling listening of whatever he is playing. --Gramophone
As one of the busiest violists on today's concert stage, Brett Deubner has received more dedicated concertos written for him than any living violist.
With over 20 recordings to his credit, he has travelled the globe performing with symphony orchestras from 5 continents including the Knoxville, Grand Rapids, Missoula, New Jersey, Reading, Fort Wayne and Portland Symphonies, as well as the Thuringer Symfoniker, the Orquesta de Heredia, the Bell' Arte Orchestre, Kiev Kamerata, and the National Symphony of Ecuador, the State Symphony or Merida Venezuela and many more.
During the recent pandemic Deubner made 5 recordings (three of them have been submitted for consideration for the 64th Grammy nominations.)
During the 2021-20211 season Deubner will give the premiere of three viola concertos written for him and perform with 11 orchestras in North and South America and Europe including solo debuts with the Michigan Philharmonic, the Ridgewood and Rockland Symphonies, the Perrysburg Symphony and the Laanesaarte Kamerorkester of Estonia.
