Avguste Antonov performed a delightful piano concert at the Broomfield Auditorium on Friday, January 22. The concert featured music by living American composers such as Robert Rollin, Matthew Saunders and William Bolcom. A special treat was the talk by one of the composers, Carter Pann, who was in attendance.
From his festive patriotic suit to his engaging exchanges with the audience, Avguste entertained and enlightened the audience. Here is some feedback from a few of the audience members:
"I enjoyed the concert, especially the variety of the American music presented. I thought he provided a very personal touch to each of the pieces. I also felt while contemporary music, it was attainable for non-music people but interesting for music aficionados."
"I thoroughly enjoyed his openness and accessibility. I like the way he explained the piece and then played. His performance was outstanding, filled with passion and exuberance. He exposed me to music that I hadn’t heard before. I will definitely be looking into the ragtime revival."
"His passion and attention to detail are front-and-center.
