Universally praised for her profound artistic sensitivity, her exquisite sound and for her unmatched palette of colors and dynamics, the Greek guitarist Antigoni Goni is internationally acclaimed as a true ambassador of the guitar and a sought-after pedagogue. In 1995 Antigoni Goni added to an already long list of competition prizes the first prize of the enormously prestigious “Guitar Foundation of America Competition”, thus becoming the first Greek (and, to present, the only) to ever win it. As 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. The New York Times praised her as “an eloquent player with a graceful touch and a rich sound.”
“Antigoni Goni has it all: beautiful tone, exquisite phrasing, great timbre and dynamic range and an engaging presence.” Soundboard Magazine
