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. Youngstown composers account for three-fifths of that project, including professor emeritus Robert Rollin’s Blue Fantasy, Richard Zacharias’s Romance for piano solo, and Samantha Hogan’s Cumulus Humilis for piano solo. Other composers are Matthew Saunders and Sy Brandon.
Antonov’s noonday recital on September 3 will be devoted to works by living American composers.
In addition to his performances, Antonov will give a guest lecture to the Dana School of Music Piano Seminar, hosted by Piano Professor Caroline Oltmanns. Both the concerts and the lecture, sponsored by the New Music Society, the New Music Guild, Inc. and Holy Apostles Church, are free and open to the public.
