MIAMI – March 2, 2017 – The 2016-17 Cleveland Orchestra Miami season concludes as The Cleveland Orchestra returns to Miami for a weekend of performances March 24 & 25 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County.
Music Director Franz Welser-Möst leads The Cleveland Orchestra in a program featuring Verdi’s ballet music from the operas Macbeth and Don Carlo, Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4 (“Italian”), and Respighi’s Pines of Rome. Clevelandclassical.com called the Orchestra and Welser-Möst’s performance of Pines of Rome “a riot of color and rich orchestral textures.”
Concert Preludes on March 24 and 25 begin at 7:00 p.m. in Knight Concert Hall and feature Cleveland Orchestra musicians under the direction of Cleveland Orchestra Associate Conductor Brett Mitchell performing the world premieres of new works by University of Miami Frost School of Music composition students. The compositions were selected during the new music reading forum, part of the education component of the Orchestra’s annual residency and ongoing partnership with the University of Miami Frost School of Music. Ravel’s Sonatine for Oboe and Piano is also part of the Concert Prelude program. A complete listing of musicians performing is included below. Information about the world premiere works is available upon request.
