South Florida Symphony Orchestra 2021-22 Season Launches with Piazzolla | Mussorgsky | Berlioz at Temple Israel of Greater Miami
November 18, 2021 - 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$36 – $160.
South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO) welcomes audiences back to rediscover the thrill of live classical music! The esteemed symphony launches its 2021-22 season in spectacular style on November 18 at 7:30 p.m. at Temple Israel of Greater Miami with Berlioz’ spirited Roman Carnival Overture; Ravel’s vibrant orchestration of Mussorgsky’s musical art gallery, Pictures at an Exhibition; and a 100th birthday celebration in honor of Astor Piazzolla, featuring The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires (Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas) performed by violinist Siwoo Kim.
South Florida Symphony’s 2021-22 season opens with “nine minutes of dashing music” by Berlioz, his overture to opera Benvenuto Cellini, called The Roman Carnival. Also on the bill is Ravel’s vibrant orchestration of Mussorgsky’s musical art gallery, Pictures at an Exhibition.
In celebration of Astor Piazzolla’s 100th birthday, South Florida Symphony presents his response to Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons — with an Argentinian tango twist. Violinist Siwoo Kim returns to the SFSO stages to perform the father of nuevo tango’s The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, an unusual collection of individual tangos that form a remarkable whole.
Called “incisive” and “compelling” by The New York Times, Siwoo Kim, charmed the South Florida Symphony Orchestra audiences with his performance Brahms Violin Concerto in January 2020. Siwoo performs globally as soloist and chamber musician, and he is the co-founding artistic director of VIVO Music Festival in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio.
Upcoming concerts will include Masterworks II: Handel’s Messiah on December 4; Masterworks III: Tchaikovsky and Gottsch Princess Yurievskaya – world premiere on January 20; Masterworks IV: Mozart, Mendelssohn and Rossini on March 24 and Masterworks V: Beethoven, Copland and Bach on April 28.
