Violinist Martin Chalifour and cellist Sergey Antonov perform Saturday at the Astoria Music Festival.

The big summer music festivals begin this month, and several performances in the past couple weeks offered enticing previews of things to come. If last night’s preview performance at Portland’s Old Church is any indication, this year’s Astoria Music Festival will make the drive to the north coast even more appealing than it already is. The two major instrumental soloists, violinist Martin Chalifour (the Los Angeles Philharmonic concertmaster who also maintains a solo career that’s brought him to Oregon several times in recent years) and cellist Sergey Antonov proved worthy of their stellar reputations.
