Welcome to the Exciting New 2014 Season
Our 17th annual season of exquisite programming continues with The Romantic Spectrum of the Master Series 2014 on March 23-24-25, in the Amaturo Theater, Broward Center for the Performing Arts.The Master Series will focus this year on the genius of CHOPIN, SCHUMANN & LISZT, through the “Romantic Spectrum”. We have selected three extraordinary pianists for this event:
Pietro De Maria dedicates his recital to FREDERIC CHOPIN. Having performed and recorded the complete works of Chopin, he will dazzle and charm the audience with his infallible technique and his innate sense of phrasing. The recording of the Mazurkas was awarded 5 stars by Amadeus vedi articolo. LISTEN
Amir Katz devotes his recital to ROBERT SCHUMANN, a composer very close to his heart. His intimate relationship to the cantabile works of romantic piano literature, combined with a passionate temperament, will enable Amir Katz to reveal the genius of this great composer to the audience. LISTEN
Balazs Szokolay offers a thrilling all FRANZ LISZT recital to close this series. Having been a Liszt Prize-winner and active in the Hungarian classical music scene for 40 years, he is one of the most important interpreters of Liszt today. An authority on the period of musical Romanticism, and a professor at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, Balazs Szokolay is someone who is passing on his accumulated knowledge to new generations of musicians.

Frank Cooper, a Lecturer in Residence of the Festival, will illuminate the audience with his comments in this fascinating journey into the glorious Romantic music of these three composers.

- New for 2014 will be a night of Opera & Piano Transcriptions.
Each year we invite a musical scholar as Lecturer in Residence to enhance the complete Festival Experience and this year we are honored to present Professor Frank Cooper.
The Miami International Piano Festival is unique in that we strive to assist the musicians as they develop their careers This approach, as a result attracts an enormous wealth of talent which translates into amazing concert experiences for our appreciative audience.
Each newly discovered artist is provided with career guidance and exposure, which for some, has resulted in coveted awards such as the Gilmore Award (the highest recognition bestowed on any pianist) and signed contracts with notable management agencies as well as prestigious recording opportunities.

Giselle Brodsky, Artistic Director and Festival co-founder says: “Every program we bring to you flourishes and stems from the ideas, desires and the inspiration of the artists. That is why we do not simply offer recitals; we offer experiences that will forever change your perception and your love and understanding of music. In an effort to re-ignite the interest in classical music and expand its audience, we continually incorporated different ideas and concepts to create new events for each season.”
