South Beach Chamber Ensemble (SBCE) continues the 2008-2009 season with the world premiere of Boston composer Pamela Marshall’s Quinteto sobre los poemas de Carlos Pintado and Hermann Goetz’s Piano Quintet in C minor, Op. 16.

(MIAMI BEACH) – South Beach Chamber Ensemble (SBCE) continues its third series of concerts with the world premiere of Boston composer Pamela Marshall’s Quinteto sobre los poemas de Carlos Pintado. We are proud to have commissioned this new work scored for violin, viola, cello, double bass and piano. Ms. Marshall studied at the Eastman School of Music and Yale University and has been a fellow at the MacDowell Colony, the oldest artists colony in the United States. Her piece is inspired by the poetry of Miami Beach-based Cuban poet Carlos Pintado. His book Self-portrait in Blue won the 2006 International Prize for Poetry Sant Jordi in Girona, Spain. Both Ms. Marshall and Mr. Pintado will be attending. Mr. Pintado will read his poems and Ms. Marshall will speak about her composing process and inspiration. 
 
“Our mission is to bring together performers, composers and audiences,” commented SBCE founder and cellist Michael Andrews. “When I first met Pamela at a Chamber Music America conference in New York several years ago little did I dream that we would be commissioning and premiering her new piano quintet. And to find out that award-winning poet Carlos Pintado lives just two blocks from me in Miami Beach is a wonderful surprise.” 
 
The other major work on the program will be German romantic composer Hermann Goetz’s Piano Quintet in C minor, Op. 16. Goetz's music is defined by lyricism and great clarity, and in general terms can be defined as quiet and introverted. Great mastery of compositional technique is characteristic of Goetz's style, which is particularly apparent in the connectedness of motifs and the technical depth of movements. Goetz was born in Konigsberg, Germany in 1840 and died in 1876. 
 
Performing will be Mei Mei Luo, violin, Richard Fleischman, viola, Michael Andrews, cello, Cindy Blandino, double bass and Ciro Fodere, piano.
