Music director and conductor Eduardo Marturet leads the symphony players on a journey of overtures, waltzes, and dances to the Austrian capital, whose deeply rooted musical traditions are made evident by streets paved with retired tubas. Born in Venezuela, Marturet also has demonstrated his command over the European orchestral tradition with frequent guest-conducting gigs with major symphonies in Germany, Denmark, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
The Miami Symphony Orchestra
Since 1989, The Miami Symphony Orchestra has mimicked Miami’s cultural diversity with concerts and events that act as a melting pot of musical influences. Music director Eduardo Marturet, a Venezuelan composer and conductor, helms many of the concerts, encouraging the musicians to unleash their inner Beethovens or Bachs—former members of the ’80s hair-metal band Skid Row.
