The coming of light, and darkness. Silence, and the song of birds; music. Cold and warmth, and the joining of hemispheres; all revolve around the solstice and the rotation of the earth. Come and celebrate the season of light as Music in Miami hosts the third annual Winter Solstice Celebration at Trinity Cathedral Miami on Sunday, 14 December at 6:00 pm.
Join outstanding South Florida oboist, Dr. Erin Gittelsohn and bass trombonist David Brubeck as they join forces to create DUO WINDS tm and present the world premiere of prominent Brazillian composer and percussionist Ney Rosauro’s new composition entitled “A Postcard from Rio”. This exciting musical voyage re-imagines the complimentary and enticing timbres of oboe and bass trombone as Brazillian percussion instruments, and infuses South American rhythms throughout the shifting meters, grooves, and tempos.
Joined by renowned pianist Bronwen Rutter, the trio will explore Astor Piazzola’s “Oblivion”, and mark the solstice with treasures from Chopin, Mendelssohn, Marcello, and Vivaldi.
This marks the third Winter Solstice celebration of the Music in Miami Concert Series at the historic and resplendent Trinity Cathedral. The opulent acoustic and visual space will host the works of dancer and choreographer Laura Prada, caroling brass, special musical guests and more than 10 artworks from the Miami-Based artist collective “Grupo Our Barrio”, led by Ismael Gomez-Peralta. These refreshing artworks will adorn the side aisles of the historic cathedral and accentuate the cosmopolitan joining of hemispheres that is Miami.
Gittelsohn is principal oboist of the Miami City Ballet Orchestra, a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and former soloist with the United States Air Force Band in Washington, DC. DUO WINDS celebrates the wind duo as a solo and chamber medium with piano within the tradition of the violin, cello and piano trio. “Postcard from Rio” is dedicated to DUO WINDS tm.
