MISO Closes the 2015/2016 Season with Six Steinway Grand Pianos On Stage

The Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO) along with Music Director and Conductor Eduardo Marturet, presented “The Steinway & Sons’ Piano Extravaganza” at the Adrienne Arsht Center’s Knight Concert Hall on May 3, 2015.

In a climactic conclusion to MISO’s 2015/2016 season, Israeli concert pianist Elisha Abas headlined an extraordinary evening of keyboard music, performing Khachaturian’s Piano Concerto in D-flat Major, Op. 38. (the great-grandson of Russian composer Alexander Scriabin, Abas made his Carnegie Hall debut at just 11 years of age).

NPR’s from the top host Christopher O’Riley and Brazilian concert pianist and composer André Mehmari presented the world premiere of Mehmari’s Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra.

New World School of the Arts’ professors Roberto Berrocal and Ciro Fodere shared the stage with Ukranian-American pianist Marina Radiushina, on Mozart’s Concerto No. 7 in F Major for Three Pianos and Orchestra.

Closing out the historic 26th season, all six performers collaborated on Liszt’s massive Hexameron for Six Pianos and Orchestra, featuring an expanded ensemble of musicians led by Maestro Marturet.
