The Miami World-Music Festival was created by South Florida Friends of Classical Music, a non-profit organization to encourage and support the musical heritage of countries around the world. The annual Festival features academic, traditional and contemporary music from diverse cultures performed by acclaimed world-class artists.
The concerts begin Sept. 13 with a performance by the Miami
Chamber Players, a new group that will include a rotating series of
area musicians. The program centers on the music of Germany, and J.S.
Bach in particular, featuring two of his Brandenburg Concerti (No. 3 in
G, No. 6 in B-flat). Performers include familiar area players such as
Daniel Andai & Tomas Cotik, violist Viera Borisova and cellist
Ashley Garritson. The program also includes the Piano Quintet in F
minor, Op. 34, of Brahms, with Adolfo Vidal at the piano.
The three-time Grammy-nominated Cuban music timba band Tiempo Libre
does the Cuban program on Sept. 14, and the Miami Guitar Trio, with
guest artist Rafael Padron, is in the spotlight Sept. 15 for a program
of music from Spain. Pianists Kemal Gekic and Margarita Shevchenko
perform the two piano suites of Sergei Rachmaninov for an all-Russian
afternoon Sept. 16, and that evening, the bandoneon master Hector Del
Curto presents a program
devoted to the tango and music of Argentina.
