Bulgarian-born pianist Avguste Antonov, now based in Dallas, who specializes in the performance of works by living composers, will present a concert at Youngstown’s Holy Apostles Church (formerly Ss. Peter and Paul) on Sunday, August 31 at 4:00 pm, and a noonday recital at the Youngstown’s Butler Institute of American Art (Beecher Court) on Wednesday, September 3.
Repertory from Antonov’s new CD on the New York Hartshorn Recordings label will be featured on his August 31 recital.

Other composers are Matthew Saunders and Sy Brandon. [Read more…]
