Miami Music Festival Presents Faculty Recital Series With Anton Nel

Classical, Orchestral

Miami Music Festival, an intensive training program for the next generation of classical musicians to work with mentors and gain performing experience, announces the lineup for the 2017 season from June 6 through July 30, 2017. In their fourth season, MMF will also present a series of Faculty Recitals as part of the MMF Piano Institute. Claude Debussy’s enchanting Suite Bergamesque, with its immortal moonlit vignette Claire de lune, is the starting point for Anton Nel’s widely varied program, which also captures the essence of Debussy as filtered through the Hungarian lens of Zoltan Kodaly in his Meditation sur un motif de Claude Debussy. Nel offers Robert Schumann’s reflections on a Viennese carnival in Faschingsschwank aus Wien, Op. 26, and the journey ends with Beethoven’s valedictory Piano Sonata No. 21, the “Waldstein.” Anton Nel returns for his second season as part of the MMF Piano Institute faculty. He holds the Endowed Chair of Piano and Keyboard Studies at the Butler School of Music, University of Texas at Austin.
