Avguste Antonov recently performed Carter Pann’s Concerto Logic for Piano and & Wind Symphony with the San Jose State University Wind Ensemble under the direction of Dr. Edward C. Harris.
As an advocate for new music, Avguste continues to discover new and interesting repertoire that is a challenge for him and delight for the audience to see and hear. While the music is angular in composition, Avguste understands what the composer wants and how to put the four different movement styles together to make for a very impressive recital.
As with the other two performances that I have witnessed by Avguste, he plays with great power and yet sensitivity where it is needed and his performance was flawless.
