Avguste is an easy guest artist. He arrived well-prepared, played brilliantly, and musically. My orchestra called him a great colleague and enjoyed our collaboration. He has the capability to work with non-professionals as well as professionals to make wonderful music. He can play with abandon and he can play with careful control: a solid player. It is no wonder that he spends a lot of his efforts in playing the demanding music of living composers. He is so easy to work with that I have engaged him to give a concerto premiere with the University City Symphony in 2014. Based on my experience, I recommend Avguste as a soloist for any concerto opportunity with orchestras both professional and non-professional.
