Concerto Night in Miami: Pietro de Maria, Josu De Solaun & Kemal Gekic with MIPF Symphony Orchestra

Get unlimited and exclusive access to the three concert


After twenty months of pandemic silence, adhering to stringent precautions for Covid, and mask-wearing at the Aventura Cultural Center, the Miami International Piano Festival opened the season with an unforgettable evening of musical magic under the direction of the Giselle Brodsky. She is the brilliant mastermind director, who assembled the three artists, the Miami International Festival Orchestra, under the direction of Jose Javier Mendoza, and selected a program that was a beautiful bouquet of favorites. She also enlisted Prof. Frank Cooper, who was at his best last night telling wonderful stories about the composers and their works.

Three of the artists with a longer history with the festival were protagonists on that night: Italian pianist Pietro de Maria, renowned Spanish soloist Josu De Solaun and Croatian-born but Miami neighbor for many years, Kemal Gekic.
