Acclaimed by the New York Times as "An eloquent player with a graceful touch and a rich sound," the Greek guitarist, Antigoni Goni enjoys a truly international career, performing extensively in Europe, Russia, the Americas, and the Far East, both as a recitalist and soloist. In 1995, to an already long list of international competition prizes she added the first prize of the Guitar Foundation of Americas (GFA), thus becoming the first and only Greek guitarist to ever conquer it. A NAXOS and KOCH recording artist, her highly successful recordings have been praised for being expressively poetic and technically exciting and have been received with great enthusiasm by the international musical community. At least a dozen of the pieces she has recorded have been included in Enrique Robichaud's classical guitar Cd guide: Guitar's TOP 100 Best. She is the Founder and Chair of the Guitar Department, Pre- College Division, at the Juilliard School of Music. She is also the founder and artistic director of "the Volterra Project, Summer Guitar Institute", a workshop bringing together, every summer, international students and professionals of the highest caliber for 10 days of intense study and inspired performances. Read more about Antigoni Goni in the Guitarist.
