An integral part of our mission is to commission new works. This year marks the first time we collaborated with Bacardi, a company with a history of supporting music, in commissioning a jazz piece. Labeled "Bacardi Choice", Martin Bejerano's Fantasia de tres mundos is the perfect reflection of Miami - rooted on American soil, influenced by the European heritage and infused with Afro-Cuban flavor.

Brilliant technique. Brilliant effect. All in one program. They ended the concert with a joyous and laughingly rendered encore for 8 hands, shared with a rapt and grateful audience.

Those who attended the Duo Yamamoto Dranoff concert on January 22 know the notion that new music is no fun at all is not true at all.
