Miami International Piano Festival
Why do we attend public performances? Why, indeed, when staying at home is far easier? Why, then do we do it?
The answer lies with each of us, our interests and curiosity. We are not satisfied with the endless repetition recordings to provide, not with the quality of media programming nor with the smaller-than-life sounds and images of videos and television. Particularly, we miss the time-honored, ultimate test of an artist – the solo recital in our space and before our eyes – with its demands of repertoire, interpretation, personality, and presentation.
To us, the sound of a concert grand piano, well played in the room with us, is a thrill in itself. The music heard at the instant of performance, provides other excitement – moving our emotions, stirring our minds. Then there is the artist, who has come to reveal both knowledge of the chosen program and a perspective behind the rendering of phrases, dynamics, textures, and pacing. Join us for our 2022-2023 Season!
