In the final concert of the season, The Miami Symphony Orchestra’s musical director and conductor, Eduardo Marturet, leads the orchestral virtuosos in an evening that’s sure to thrill ears and shatter glass tuxedos with music from Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms. During Bach’s Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor, a resounding organ booms throughout the hall. Next, three guest musicians weave their respective violin, cello, and piano into the playful instrumental dialogue Beethoven wrote for his Triple Concerto in C Major. The evening’s final piece, now considered part of the classical canon, in fact forced hundreds to flee for the exits when it was first performed in Boston in 1884. Brahms’s Symphony no. 3 in F Major had been somewhat of a novelty that was difficult for orchestras to play and for audiences to understand. The concert will also include a special Mother’s Day addition, and patrons are encouraged to bestow tickets on music-loving matriarchs.
Opened in 2006, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts hosts a diverse roster of entertainment and educational programming. Inside its Knight Concert Hall, 2,200 seats intimately circle the stage as two rows of box seats hover just below a ceiling swirled with blonde woods and light fixtures.
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.
