Russian guitarist Anton Baranov is the prize-winner of more then 15 prestigious international guitar competitions, including the Koblenz Guitar Competition, Andrés Segovia Competition, Agustín Barrios Competitio, Robert Vidal Competition, and Pittaluga Guitar Competition. In 2013, he won both the Guitar Foundation of America’s (GFA)International Concert Artist Competition and the Francisco Tárrega Competition. Guitarist and composer Roland Dyens, known for his daring interpretation and innovative programming, calls Mr Baranov, “a real musician, one of those rare guitarists who are able to have their attendees almost forget the instrument they play, managing to have them focus on the expressivity of the music and only this.” As part of his prize from winning the Guitar Foundation of America competition, Mr. Baranov embarks on a 50-city concert tour throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, and Brazil, and has recently recorded his first album on the Naxos label. Mr. Baranov is a D’Addario artist since 2013 and currently teaches at his alma mater, the St. Petersburg Conservatory. Born in 1984 in the Northwest region of Russia, Anton Baranov graduated from the famous St. Petersburg State Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory in 2010 under grants from the Russian Ministry of Culture and the Russian Performing Arts Foundation.
