Important change – new performers
Andrei Ionita has had to cancel his appearance this Sunday due to an injury to his hand. We are pleased to announce that Sergey Antonov, who is also a Tchaikovsky Competition winner, will appear instead, and will be accompanied by pianist with Ilya Kazantsev.
Cellist Sergey Antonov enjoys a versatile career as a soloist and chamber musician. Critics throughout the world have hailed him as “destined for cello superstardom”. After winning the Gold Medal in the 2007 International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Mr. Antonov has been touring extensively throughout Europe, Asia, and North and South America, performing in halls ranging from the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory to Suntory Hall in Tokyo.
Ilya Kazantsev, a fresh and exciting presence on the international music scene, has been hailed by the Washington Post as “virtually flawless.” He has performed extensively with orchestras in Russia and the United States, as well as appearing in recital in Germany, Japan, Italy, France, Canada, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, the United States, and Slovenia. His many awards and honors include first prize at the Nikolai Rubinstein International Competition (Paris); he also won the International Chopin Competition (Moscow) and the 2007 & 2008 World Piano Competitions (Cincinnati).
