FROM EUROPE WITH PASSION:
a treat of violin music not-to-be-missed
presented by Center Makor and Q Entertainment
featuring STANISLAV ANTONEVICH, virtuoso violinist
"... he grabs the listener's soul and brings it to a place of unimaginable beauty" -- concertgoer
1st Half: with SERGEY KHANUKAEV, piano
Featuring US premiere of three pieces for violin by Polish composer Bartosz Jazdzewski, written especially for Stanislav's concert in London in June 2012, including a solo piece dedicated to Stanislav by the composer. Also featuring some rare virtuosic and sentimental pieces from early 20th century European composers. One of these pieces came to Boston from Russia via Harbin (China) and later Siberia. The performance of this piece -- perhaps its first US performance on a big stage -- is dedicated to Soviet musicians who fell victim to Stalin's terror.
About SERGEY KHANUKAEV: The team of Sergey Khanukaev, conductor and pianist, and Stanislav Antonevich is already known to the Makor audiences, but in a different role -- as the conductor-concertmaster team for Boston Vocal Arts Studio's production of Tchaikovsky's opera "Iolanta" last May. Both the Boston Globe and the Boston Musical Intelligencer specifically took note of the work of this outstanding musical duo, who they said "performed miracles" in creating "lush-sounding" music.
2nd Half: with LEO LOGINOV KATZ, jazz piano
Featuring Jazz favorites arranged for violin and piano in the European Gypsy-Jazz style. This music has been included in this concert upon special request by Makor, after Stanislav's jazz concert a year ago in a smaller venue proved to be a rousing success. Stanislav's professional jazz background is unique for a world-class classical violinist.
About LEO LOGINOV KATZ: Makor is bringing this virtuoso improvisational pianist back after a successful solo show here earlier this year; this is his first collaboration with Stanislav. Leo is known for his "deep emotional sense, exquisite taste, and refreshing humor", as well as for his spontaneous compositions on themes requested by the audience. Leo and Stanislav plan to repeat this feat, this time as a duo.

From reviews of Stanislav's work:
"a SPECTACULAR performance... a very full, concentrated tone with the bow combined with a melting vibrato. Crisp, precise technique, yet he includes poetic phrasing. Great violinist!
"the violinist Stanislav Antonevich stands out brilliantly, as an extraordinary talent, and oustanding person, an exceptional performer, and a virtuoso"
"an outstanding concert artist... He brings a high level of technical expertise as well as a musical intelligence and passion to the task..."
"Stanislav handles the difficult sections of the most technically challenging pieces with ease. But that is besides the point. The truly amazing thing is how he grabs the listener's soul and brings it to a place of unimaginable beauty. Hearing him is always a rare treat."
