Copland’s classic Appalachian Spring opens the show at this early April concert, evoking gentle sheets of rain over newly greening mountains with drawn out, densely layered tonal waves. The soothing arrangement paints images of folk dances and chorale melodies, including the humble Shaker song “Simple Gifts.” Soloists Nuno Antunes (clarinet) and Adrian Morejon (bassoon) weave a complicated knot of melodies with the help of the orchestra. The Lisbon-born Antunes has worked with philharmonics from New York to Mexico and founded the The Gene Project, a New York–based clarinet-bassoon-harp trio of which Morejon is also a member. Mozart’s stately Symphony No. 35 in D Major closes the evening with pomp aplenty.
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.
