Costa Rica National Symphony Orchestra
José Serebrier, conductor
Shelly Berg, piano

Thirty years ago, conductor, composer and orchestrator José Serebrier was the first artistic director of a new “International Music Festival of the Americas,” now known as Festival Miami. Now with eight Grammy awards including the Latin Grammy for “Best Classical Album of 2004” and a celebrated career as a conductor, Serebrier returns with the Costa Rica National Symphony Orchestra in the spirit of the maestro’s founding vision to bring internationally acclaimed touring artists and orchestras to Miami. The first program opens with a U.S. premiere of Imágines by acclaimed Costa Rican composer Vinicio Meza. Then, pianist Shelly Berg performs a stunning rendition of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue for orchestra plus jazz trio. The concert concludes with lively music from the 1955 film, The Gadfly, composed by Russian master Dmitri Shostakovich.
