When one thinks of Classical music and its genome, the mind first turns to Europe, where “modern music” was born. 
 
Since the 17th century, top shelf composers around the globe have taken the European traditions established by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and their ilk, absorbed and infused those methods and forms into their indigenous music.

Conventional wisdom has it that you are never an expert in your own home town. While this may be true in my case, it certainly isn’t in the case of the four plucky musicians who make up the South Beach Chamber Ensemble (SBCE). Luis Fernandez (violin), Tony Seepersad (violin), Rafael Ramirez (viola), and Michael Andrews (cello), are the members of this power-house quartet based in Miami Beach.

(Wausau, WI) – South Beach Chamber Ensemble (SBCE) continues its fifth annual free chamber music festival with the celebration of Robert Schumann’ 200th birthday. The German born Schumann (June 8, 1810 – July 29, 1856) was one of the most famous Romantic composers of the 19th century. He had hoped to pursue a career as a virtuoso pianist, having been assured by his teacher Friedrich Wieck that he could become the finest pianist in Europe after only a few years of study with him.

(MIAMI BEACH) – South Beach Chamber Ensemble (SBCE) performs its last concerts of the season featuring early 20th century English composers and our continuing collaboration with award-winning Cuban poet Carlos Pintado. Mr. Pintado was inspired by Edward Elgar’s String Quartet in E minor, Op. 83 to create a new fusion of poetry and music. Elgar (1856-1934) had been trying to write a quartet that pleased him since he was twenty-one. It was not until the end of the Great War (WWI), when he was in his sixties, that he felt able to turn to chamber music with any confidence.
