Christina Pato Quartet in Latina

Saturday, Jan 20, 2018 at 7:30 PM - English

South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center Presents Christina Pato Quartet in Latina.

The concept for Pato’s Latina stemmed from her fascination with the word and what it has come to mean. Although originally referring to a group resident in the Italian peninsula, the term Latinos/Latinas is now generally used to refer to individuals whose ancestry stems from Spanish origins. In the same way that Latin based languages have spread widely, the musical elements of Latin cultures have been propagated across continents. Through her musical investigations, Pato discovered the recurrent use of a 6/8 pattern (six beats of quarter notes in a waltz-like feel) from the tarantellas of Italy all the way to the Afro-Peruvian style of landó on the Pacific coast of South America. For Pato, finding the connections between these diverse cultures has helped her to find her own more positive meaning to a term by which she found herself constantly defined, Latina.

ABOUT KEMAL GEKIC

Flamboyant, daring, provocative, exciting, seductive and sensitive are some of the words used to describe one of today’s most formidable pianists, Kemal Gekic, whose playing has been acclaimed worldwide by public and critics alike. Born in Split, Croatia in 1962, Gekić amazed his family by accurately picking out melodies at the piano at age one and a half. The young prodigy received all his early musical training from his aunt, Lorenza Batturina. In 1978 he entered the class pf Prof. Jokuthon Mihailovich (a graduate of Moscow Conservatory) at the Art Academy of Novi Sad, Yugoslavia. He graduated in 1982 with the highest mark ever granted a diploma exam recital, and was immediately given a faculty appointment by the piano department which he eventually directed until 1999. During his school years he won prizes at the Franz Liszt Competition in Parma (1981), the Viana da Motta in Lisbon (1983) and the Yugoslav Artists’ Competition in Zagreb (1984). He earned his Master’s degree in 1985, the same year he created a sensation at the Chopin Competition in Warsaw. Although panned by the jury he won the hearts of audience and critics alike, and began receiving many invitations to perform abroad, including several from the Chopin Society of Hannover, Germany which had awarded him a special prize for best sonata performance at the competition.

A recording of his Warsaw performances sold 60,000 copies in Germany by the end of the year, and the Victor Entertainment Corporation, Japan (JVC) sold 80,000 copies of a CD version in their home country. In the years following the 1985 Chopin Competition, in addition to extensive concert activity in Germany, Denmark, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Spain, France, Italy, Canada and of course Yugoslavia, he completed tours of the USSR and Japan-Southeast Rim. Programs of his life and his performances were broadcast by RAI Italy, TV Portugal, TV Yugoslavia, NHK Japan, POLTEL Poland, RTV Lower Saxony West Germany, RTV USSR, Intervision, CBC and PBS. Kemal Gekić is Professor of Piano and Artist-in-Residence at Florida International University, a position he has held since 1999.  Mr. Gekić ‘s web page can be found at http://www.kemalgekic.com.

MOAD MDC Presents Samora Pinderhughes: The Transformations Suite

Feb 2, 2018 & Feb 3, 2018 - various times - English

"Fate knocking at the door." Beethoven's Fifth symphony opens with perhaps the four most famous notes in all of music. Revolutionary in its time, it is now perhaps the most well-known piece of music in history. Plus, Beethoven's almost uncharacteristically joyful Eighth Symphony is an often-overlooked masterpiece containing just as much brilliance than his more well-known symphonies.

Instantly Maceo recognises Hank Crawford, the epitome of cool in his leather jacket and matching boots. It is nearly midnight, but Crawford still has his sunglasses on. The back door of the Coliseum opens and the rest of the band spill out. Then Ray Charles emerges and in an awestruck moment the young saxophonist makes a promise to himself and a silent one to Ray Charles: “one of these days you’re all gonna know me”

In 1993 that promise came true for Maceo when he opened shows for Ray Charles all over Europe, and did the same the following year at the Lincoln Centre in New York.

Just as James Brown would have Maceo sing Georgia in his shows, Prince had Maceo do the same thing during his Musicology tour as a tribute to Ray Charles after he passed away in 2004.

It was the loss of Ray Charles that led Maceo to think about somehow doing something with former members of the Ray Charles Orchestra. As he toured the world for the next ten years he wondered what would happen to the band following the loss of their leader and how important it might be to put that band “back together” and perform Ray’s work.

In the interim years Maceo recorded two Big Band albums the first of which, Roots and Grooves, was part tribute to Ray Charles and received huge critical acclaim.

Finally, in 2014 following a chance remark spotted by his manager on Facebook, the idea of putting Maceo with former members of the Ray Charles Orchestra and Raelettes went from a dream to a real possibility. Two years later that possibility in turn became a reality.

In 2016 Maceo performed a tribute to Ray Charles, the Ray Charles Orchestra, and the Raelettes on August 17th at the Hollywood Bowl as part of Hollywood Bowl’s 2016 season. Followed a month later by a show at the 59th annual Monterey Jazz Festival.

This was the first time that the RC Orchestra members had performed together since Ray Charles passed away in 2004, and the shows have now been already experienced by several thousand people. For Maceo, for the orchestra, and for the singers this is a dream come true. The essence of the music of Ray Charles shines through these performances and already there are festivals who have booked this this project for their 2017 or 2018 seasons.

“I’ve known for a long time that Maceo was the right person to pay tribute to Ray in a genuine way that I think Ray would have enjoyed. The fact that he insists on wanting to work with Ray’s musicians and backup singers only solidifies that he would like to present this music with and in the spirit that it was taught to us and performed by Ray. We think the songs that we’ve selected are a great representation of Ray Charles’ biggest hits and the tunes that he liked to sing on a regular basis.”

George Benson: A Night of BREEZIN' and Greatest Hits

Friday, Feb 16, 2018 at 8:00 PM - English

Simply one of the greatest artists in jazz history, 10-time GRAMMY winner and NEA Jazz Master George Benson is an amazingly versatile musician, whose adept skills find him crossing easily between straight-ahead jazz, smooth jazz, and contemporary R&B. At various points along the five-decade continuum of his storied career, he has been heralded as a jazz guitarist of unparalleled chops, a vocalist with great emotional range and sophistication or a combination of both. However, he regards himself as an entertainer in the broadest sense of the word – a singer of songs, a spinner of tales.

The evening will begin with Jake Shimabukuro who has become one of the most exceptional and innovative uke players in the history of the instrument—an artist who has drawn comparisons to musical titans such as Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis. He has collaborated with artists from Yo-Yo Ma, Jimmy Buffett, Jack Johnson and Cyndi Lauper to Ziggy Marley, Dave Koz, Lyle Lovett and Bette Midler, and wowed audiences at SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Playboy Jazz Festival, and the cutting-edge TED conference.

Winner of the 2015 TONY AWARD for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book of a Musical, Fun Home is about Alison, a graphic novelist who dives deep into her past to tell the story of her father, a volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Through her work, she relives her unique upbringing in the family’s funeral home, her burgeoning sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.

Beethoven and Mendelssohn Piano Trios - Coral Gables Museum

Friday, Apr 27, 2018 from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM - English

German Masters: Beethoven and Mendelssohn Piano Trios.

Beethoven PianoTrio in B-flat major, Op. 97 (1811) and Mendelssohn Piano Trio in D minor, Op. 49 (1839).

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. The Piano Trio in B-flat major, Op. 97 is commonly referred to as the Archduke Trio, because it was dedicated to Archduke Rudolph of Austria, the son of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor. The trio was written in the Beethoven's "middle period".

Show more >>

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor of the early Romantic period. Mendelssohn enjoyed early success in Germany, where he also revived interest in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and in his travels throughout Europe. His essentially conservative musical tastes set him apart from many of his more adventurous musical contemporaries. Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 49 was completed on September 23, 1839 and published the following year. The trio is one of Mendelssohn's most popular chamber works and recognized as one of his greatest pieces. During the composition of the work, Mendelssohn took the advice of a fellow composer, Ferdinand Hiller, and revised the piano part. This version was in a more romantic, Schumannesque style with the piano given a more important role in the trio. The revised piece was reviewed by Schumann who declared Mendelssohn to be "the Mozart of the nineteenth century, the most illuminating of musicians."

In a record 90 minutes, both actors are put to the test as they try to convince their potential theatrical backers (the audience) that this insane frivolity is somehow worthy of the authors’ unrealistic hopes and aspirations.
