The Miami Symphony Orchestra’s corps of 80 professional musicians heats up concert halls under the direction of continent-hopping maestro Eduardo Marturet. In March, “Flamingo” glides into the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center with a pair of euphonious premieres tucked beneath its wings, starting with Daugherty’s composition Flamingo. Internationally acclaimed hornist Hector Rodriguez––whose career has landed him in concert halls across the U.S., Europe, and Asia––rockets the symphony to brassier heights during a spirited rendition of Mozart’s Horn Concerto no. 3. Emerging from its mellifluous cocoon for the first time, the symphonic notes of Concierto de Andalucia flutter into the ears and butterfly nets of each audience member as guitarist Juan Diego plucks away at his strings. The Birds, penned by Italian composer Ottorino Respighi, brings the evening to an epic conclusion without relying on gimmicks such as hiding bottle rockets inside of tubas.
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.
