Pathbreaking pianist Augustus Arnone maintains the supremely difficult balance between performing and the academic world. His sheer flair and commitment make him one of our most intriguing advocates for new music — music by living composers. His formative years at Cornell brought him into close contact with historic pianos and the great composers’ own soundscapes, even as he made his home at the edge of transcendental extremes in the modern repertory. Mr. Arnone also brings rare insight and passion to classics of our time, such as the sensuous, angular scores of Maurice Ravel.
