A Creative Finale for Mainly Mozart
The Mainly Mozart Festival has come a long way since the series’ early years in a Coral Gables hotel ballroom. The past two installments of the annual summer event under new artistic director Marina Radiushina have brought an expanded number of concerts in a variety of venues and more diverse and ambitious repertoire. Sunday afternoon at downtown Miami’s Arsht Center, Radiushina presented her most innovative offering yet.
The sensitivity and tonal coloration of their playing in the softer moments wonderfully complemented the choreography of Adriana Pierce … the athletic leaps and fitful angular movements of the penitents were brilliantly executed by dancers Emily Bromberg, Leigh-Ann Esty, Michael Sean Breeden and Eric Trope from Miami City Ballet.
