Miami favorite, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, returns to the Knight Concert Hall! One of the world’s greatest chamber orchestras, Academy of St Martin in the Fields is renowned for fresh, brilliant interpretations of the world’s greatest classical music.

Today the Academy is led by Music Director and virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell, retaining the collegiate spirit and flexibility of the original small, conductor-less ensemble which has become an Academy hallmark. Jeremy Denk is one of America’s foremost pianists. Winner of a MacArthur ‘Genius’ Fellowship and the Avery Fisher Prize, Denk was also recently elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Denk is known for his original and insightful writing on music which Alex Ross praises for its "arresting sensitivity and wit."

The list grows as he progresses from childhood (“Ice Cream”) and adolescence (“Star Trek”), to college (“Surprises”) and marriage (“Falling in Love”). But when life deals a bitter blow, the list proves to be helpful to the son in ways that it could never be for the mother.

Jazz Roots: R+R=Now

Jazz

In an era when every headline carries some new horror or fresh worry, we need music that can clap back with immediacy, skill, and heart. We need a band so at home in its skin that it can play without ego and lead with love—artists whose very existence attests to resilience and hope. We need R+R=NOW, a supergroup assembled by Robert Glasper but functionally egalitarian, in no small part because its members are visionary players, composers, and producers on their own: Glasper on keys, Terrace Martin on synthesizer and vocoder, Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah on trumpet, Derrick Hodge on bass, Taylor McFerrin on synth and beatbox, and newcomer Justin Tyson on drums. You could try to count up the GRAMMYs between them but you'd be missing the point. This genre-mashing outfit moves as one and, as their name reveals, with great purpose.

Helene Grimaud and Mahler

Classical, Orchestral

Celebrated pianist, human rights activist, wildlife conservationist and author Hélène Grimaud makes her anticipated return to the Adrienne Arsht Center in a one-night-only performance of Maurice Ravel’s jazzy Concerto in G. Its sublime second movement in the hands of Ms. Grimaud is said to make time stand still. Conductor Mark Wigglesworth closes the program with the Fellows in Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony. Mahler famously said, “to create a symphony is, for me, to create a world,” and this world is boldly emblazoned with both youthful energy and musical maturity. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s beloved Overture to The Magic Flute is a sparkling romp fueled by musical genius.
