Biography:

Ever since being a winner of Artists International's 1996 New York Debut Award Auditions, Anthony Newton has established himself as a premier African-American classical pianist. His gifted technical and musical abilities have given him high praise both within the United States and abroad. Mr. Newton was hailed for his past performances, with reviews including the following: "He has forthright musical ideas, and the technical fluency with which to present them." (Harris Goldsmith, New York Concert Review); "His minute attention to technical and stylistic details was quite remarkable indeed. He made beautiful music, and that is what counts most." (Raoul Abdul, New York Amsterdam News).

A featured piano soloist during his international tours of Germany and France at the Sommerakademie für Klavier Konz, Mr. Newton has made several appearances performing in many of the major New York City concert halls. Under the prestige of Artists International Presentations, Mr. Newton performed his highly acclaimed New York Debut Piano Recital at the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in October 1996 as part of the Young Artists Debut Winners Series and, through invitation, was presented twice more in the Alumni-Winners Series in a recital featuring Chopin's Four Scherzi at Merkin Concert Hall in May 1999 and an all-Beethoven solo piano and chamber music recital at Weill Recital Hall in November 2000. Mr. Newton performed Beethoven's Triple Concerto at Alice Tully Hall in 1997. Other concerto performances include his renditions of Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto, Mozart's Piano Concerto in c minor and Mozart's Concerto for Two Pianos in E-flat major with the Queens College Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maurice Peress. Other notable appearances include performances at Bargemusic in New York City (1991), at the Longy School of Music in Boston, MA (1991), over national television and on public radio.

A winner of numerous prizes and awards, Mr. Newton enrolled at the Manhattan School of Music Preparatory Division at the age of 14, studying with Robert Harris. He received his Bachelor of Music degree from Queens College's Aaron Copland School of Music under the instruction of Donald Pirone. He then returned to the Manhattan School, completing the requirements for his Master of Music degree and Professional Studies Certificate under the guidance of Phillip Kawin. Mr. Newton studied chamber music with Morey Ritt and Jeanine Dowis. He also studied and performed for such distinguished artists as Gerald Robbins, Constance Keene, Karl Urlich Schnabel, John Perry, Byron Janis, Ruth Laredo, Eugene Istomin, John Browning and Paul Trein.

Mr. Newton has a vast repertoire of solo piano works. His repertory spans from works of Bach to modern works. He released his first compact disc recording titled Anthony Newton Plays Beethoven, Volume 1 which contains Beethoven's Pathétique, Moonlight and Appassionata piano sonatas. Mr. Newton is also a very gifted, much-in-demand chamber musician with a extensive selection of performed works. He is currently a member and co-founder of the Corona Piano Trio, which performed at Weill Recital Hall and celebrated its 10th anniversary with a concert at Steinway Hall in New York City in January 2003. Mr. Newton also performed in other ensembles such as the Diaspora Chamber Players and Ensemble Sepia. Other notable chamber music engagements include performances at the Waterloo Music Festival at Princeton University as a two-time fellowship recipient, and with the New Jersey Chamber Music Society as a guest artist.

Along with being a very active concert artist, Mr. Newton also expresses a great joy in teaching music to children. Holding a Certificate in Piano Pedagogy from the Manhattan School of Music, Mr. Newton has his own piano studio and is an Adjunct Professor at Queens College, being on the piano and chamber music faculties at the Center for Preparatory Studies in Music. He is also an active member of the Associated Music Teachers League. In addition, he is the founder and director of the Young Artists Piano Showcase, which gives young pianists, through audition, an opportunity to perform at Weill Recital Hall, and the founder and artistic director of the Messiah Festival of the Arts, a concert series devoted on showcasing talented classical musicians.
