The Miami Symphony Orchestra’s corps of 80 professional musicians heats up concert halls under the direction of continent-hopping maestro Eduardo Marturet. A Valentine Extravaganza cribs its aura of romance and affection from iconic love stories, romancing ears with themes from films including Romeo & Juliet, West Side Story, and Lady and the Tramp 3: Tramp Learns the Cello. During the performance’s Goldmark suite, decorated violinist Ilya Kayer slices mellifluous andante melodies off his violin strings with a deftly wielded bow before the full-strength symphony returns to pluck beautiful selections from Sarasate, Mascagni, and Bernstein.
Inside the Wertheim Performing Arts Center’s two-tiered hall, 600 seats absorb caroming notes from the resonant walls to deliver performances more captivating than a piggyback ride on the maestro’s shoulders.
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.
