The Miami International GuitART Festival celebrates the musical legacy of Maestro Leo Brouwer, who is one of contemporary music’s living legends. Acclaimed in his youth as one of the all-time great performers of the classical guitar, the Cuban composer is an Honorary Member of UNESCO and is recognised worldwide as the guitar’s most outstanding living composer for the instrument, and as a pioneer in the fusion of musical styles and genres.
The concert program includes Concierto Elegiaco (Concerto No. 3) for guitar and orchestra, Quintet for guitar and string quartet, and solo guitar works by Brouwer, featuring FIU Symphony Orchestra directed by maestro Javier José Mendoza, guitarists Eren Sualp, winner of the 2014 International Guitar Competition “Michele Pittaluga”, Rene Izquierdo, Rafael Padron, Celso Cano, Cuba Guitar Duo, Wabi-Sabi Duo, Mesut Ozgen and Amernet String Quartet.
