Anton Baranov

Guitar (General Management)

“His creative interpretation of each work is undeniable in his daring instrumental technique.”  The Index, West Michigan

Baranov is an artist who manages to paint beautiful sound pictures of rich depth and color from his guitar.”  The Guitar, New York

“…a musical journey with tonal and technical perfection” Borbecker Nachrichten, Essen

“Baranov’s playing was pure magic. So subtle were his timing and touch—from

Gentle grazes of the fingers to more deliberate plucks—that it seemed like a joke to think

that the music he played could be represented by marks on a page.” Cleveland Classical

“Mr. Baranov plays with the stylistic identity of a native of Latin America. No

Russian accent here…” American Record Guide
