Logos Futura includes three landmark world premiere recordings for classical concert accordion and orchestra. These works were composed expressly for Antonio by Malcolm Forsyth, Violet Balestreri Archer, and Allan Gilliland. Antonio recorded the Forsyth concerto with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and then Music Director Grzegorz Nowak, and recorded the Archer and Gilliland works with Cuba’s prestigious Camerata Romeu string orchestra under the direction of their founder and Music Director Zenaida Romeu.
