Cesar Vuksic, pianist, composer and painter, has appeared throughout the U.S., South America, Europe and Japan as a recitalist, soloist with orchestra and chamber musician. He has premiered numerous compositions by South and North American composers, some of them written especially for him. As a composer, his own works have been performed in the U.S. and Latin America by outstanding musicians and presented in concerts and festivals by music organizations such as Buenos Aires New Music Association, Americas Society, North-South Consonance(New York), New York University, Western Michigan University, InterAmerican Music Festival(Washington DC), Meet the Composer, The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Queens Council on the Arts, Langston Hughes Cultural Center and the Americas Vocal Ensemble. Critic Harold Schonberg wrote in the American Record Guide about his 4Tay CD Tangos, Preludes, Etudes: “Vuksic is a sound and sensitive musician with a technique big enough to handle anything that comes his way.”
