For more than a decade, organizers of the St. Martha-Yamaha Concert Series, led by artistic founding director Paul Posnak, have been presenting award-winning musical artists. Concerts are $15 per person. Buy tickets here.
Here’s the schedule:
Sunday, April 22, 3 p.m.: Messiaen Quartet: Music for Eternity
Four New York-based master musicians – pianist Daniel Epstein, violinist Sheng-Ching Hsu, clarinetist Eric Umble, and cellist Ben Larsen – will perform Messiaen’s masterpiece Quartet for the End of Time. Captured at Verdun in 1940, Messiaen transcended his Stalag prison camp’s misery to express his exalted vision of music as a spiritual connection to creation and the creator. First performed in prison, the quartet, named after the Angel’s call to the Apocalypse in Revelation, is one of the most significant chamber compositions of the 20th century. The quartet also will performTasveer, by award-winning Indian-American composer Reena Esmail.
The series moved from St. Martha’s Catholic Church to the Broad Center for the Performing Arts at Barry University, 11300 NE 2nd Ave., Miami Shores, FL 33161. Call 305-751-0005 for more info.
Tickets are $15 for general admission and $25 for Blue Circle.
