INAUGURAL STRINGS & PIANO FESTIVAL LAUNCHES IN MIAMI

INAUGURAL STRINGS & PIANO FESTIVAL LAUNCHES IN MIAMI

The Josef Gingold Chamber Music Festival of Miami announces the inaugural season of world-class concerts and intensive educational initiatives celebrating the legacy of violinist Josef Gingold—the primary exponent of the “Golden Age” of violin—on the Miami Shores campus of Barry University, July 7-28, 2019.


Josef Gingold’s principal exponent, Cuban-born violinist Andrés Cárdenes, leads the festival as Music Director.

Fifty-five students from around the world descend on Miami for intensive study with 18 faculty members from top conservatories (such as Juilliard, Eastman School of Music, Manhattan School of Music, Colburn School, and St. Petersburg Conservatory, among others) and orchestras (such as New York Philharmonic, Dallas and Pittsburgh Symphonies, among others).

Andrés Cárdenes

Public concerts occur during the 2019 festival featuring violinists Andrés Cárdenes and Gary Levinson, pianists Alexandre Moutouzkine and Alon Goldstein, cellists Andrés Diaz and Anne Martindale Williams, violists Paul Coletti and Michael Klotz, and other prestigious artists. This is a unique opportunity in Miami to hear some of the world’s foremost classical musicians in an intimate setting this summer.

Further, the three-week educational program offers master classes, career management symposia, and lectures on musical and industry topics. The festival focuses on both solo and chamber repertoire for strings and piano.

The Josef Gingold Chamber Music Festival of Miami upholds the belief in mentoring the next generation of performers in the culturally diverse and vibrant city of Miami. It aims to spread knowledge, interest, and appreciation in classical music across Miami-Dade County. The festival is co-founded by two veteran arts administrators, Dr. Giselle Elgarresta Rios and Robert H. Smith, Jr., both of Miami, FL.

Varied concert programming—open to the public—features string quartets, string trios, piano quintets, solo piano as well as works for strings with piano.
