Thursday, April 20, 2017 - 7:30 pm - Antiquarian Hall (American Antiquarian Society)
Please join us for a free pre-concert lecture at 6:30pm in Antiquarian Hall.
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” -Washington Post, “combining formidable technique and an incredibly warm, penetrating and vibrant tone to a romantic musical sensibility to create music - making of a highest caliber” - Budapest Sun. After one of the Newport Festival concerts in RI, a critic wrote “... a performance with soaring phrases and a tone to die for.” Sergey’s performance of the Elgar concerto drew the critic of the Moscow’s Daily Telegraph to write: “[he] is a musician who has his own inner space, where he submerges himself from the very first sound…who turns each phrase, every deeply felt sound into an event of his own inner monologue.” A Canadian critic wrote: “Antonov conveyed ...a world of expression from plaintive hope to existential pathos.”
Sergey's 2nd performance with us in Worcester will take place at the American Antiquarian Society, our first-ever performance in that space. Read about and get directions for AAS here.
"Tuesday's recital was Antonov's Music Worcester debut and drew a large, appreciative audience. One can only hope that Music Worcester brings him back to town regularly so that we can experience his further development as an artist: this concert amply demonstrated that Antonov's one to watch." -Jonathan Blumhofer
