From Sunday through Tuesday, March 3 5, four unique programs will be presented at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale by some of the world’s most impressive masters of the keyboard.

The Master Series opens with a performance by Francesco Libetta (Italy), dubbed the “pianist of the impossible” by filmmaker Bruno Monsaingeon, Libetta has earned a reputation for his brilliant and personal interpretations of the classics’ most challenging repertoire. His 3:00 pm. matinee recital will include works by Godard, Debussy, Saint Saens, Fauré, and Ravel. Of his 2009 Festival performance, Alan Becker wrote,“Libetta, hands, possibly taken over by demons, took all of the tortures in stride and left the audience amazed that the unbelievable had taken place before them.”

Sunday evening, Aleksandar Madzar (Serbia) offers Festival audiences a program of pure Ravel. Maurice Ravel "The Elegant Impressionist," wrote some of the most intensely beautiful and perfectly-crafted "impressionist" music of the 20th century. Ravel met Debussy in the 1890s. In 1900, Ravel was invited to Debussy’s home and they played each other’s works. Debussy was considered more spontaneous and casual in his compositions, while Ravel was more attentive to form and craftsmanship. In the hands of Madzar, Ravel’s music comes alive. “. . .his playing so tender and gently colored that his fingers barely seemed to be touching the keys.” Wrote the Miami Herald after his Festival debut in 2008 at the Discovery Series.

On Monday evening, the Festival turns the stage over to Konstantin Lifschitz (Russia) who will focus on the music of Debussy. In 2008 Lifschitz made Festival history by performing both books of Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier. “Yet so naturally poetic and expressive was his playing that he made it seem as if the entirety of the modern piano repertory lay nascent in these 48 pieces,” wrote the NY Times. Debussy will be no less thrilling in the hands of this great Master as he presents his thoughtful interpretations of works such as L'isle joyeuse, 6 epigraphes antiques, Soiree dans Grenade and all the Preludes from Book One.

To conclude the 2013 Master Series, the Festival has put together a special chamber program of French Impressionist jewels featuring three collaborative geniuses: pianist, Misha Dacic (Serbia), violinist, Gilles Apap (France), and cellist Dimitri Maslennikov (Russia). Included in their program will be Debussy’s Violin Sonata in G minor, Ravel’s Cello Sonata, and Fauré’s Piano Trio in D minor. A local favorite, Dacic was first brought to the U.S. by the Festival in 2003 and it was just a matter of time until the Festival could find the perfect opportunity to pair him with the eclectic French violinist, Gilles Apap. Joined by cellist Maslennikov, the Master Series’ grande finale will be Ravel’s Piano Trio in A minor. Inspiration for the musical content of the Trio came from a wide variety of sources, from Basque dance to Malaysian poetry and is regarded as a technical masterpiece.

After the intermission of each performance, guest lecturer Stuart Isacoff will shed light on the repertoire’s historical context. Isacoff is an award-winning writer, pianist, composer and lecturer who performs and lectures across North America and Europe. He is the author of A Natural History of the Piano (Knopf, 2011), as well as the highly acclaimed Temperament (Knopf/Vintage, 2003).

“As we celebrate 16 years of a truly enriching and exciting journey into the world of the piano, the Masters Series has become a vehicle for digging deeply into the profound repertoire of the composers,” noted the Miami International Piano Festival’s Artistic Director Giselle Brodsky. “During these intense explorations of a single composer or in this year’s case an entire genre, these musical jewels can enjoy new life in the hands of today’s great masters.”
