EDUARDO MARTURET

CONDUCTOR & COMPOSER

MUSIC DIRECTOR AND CONDUCTOR BIOGRAPHY

   
 
     Eduardo Marturet enjoys an active career on three continents; he is the Music Director and Conductor of The Miami Symphony Orchestra and continues to guest conduct actively in Europe. He has made more than 60 CDs that range from the Brahms complete symphonic cycle to surveys of Latin America's greatest orchestral composers.
 
     European orchestras with which he has had an active guest conducting relationship include Berliner Symphoniker, European Community Chamber Orchestra, Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz, RAI Symphony Orchestra, Danish Radio Symphony, Royal Flemish Philarmonique, Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie, Gelders Orkest, Bohemian Chamber Philharmonic, Budapest Radio Symphony, Brabant Orkest, and Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra in Amsterdam. In 2001, he led the Berliner Symphoniker on a 12-concert tour of major South American cities including Caracas, Sao Paulo, Cordoba, Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Mexico City and Monterrey. A documentary of the tour was broadcast through the region by DirecTV.
 
    Born in Caracas, Marturet studied in Cambridge, England where he became firmly rooted in the European tradition, obtaining a degree in Piano, Percussion, Composition and Conducting which he studied with Brian Thomas, Franco Ferrara and John Carewe. In 1979, he returned to Venezuela with a permanent position with the Orquesta Filarmónica de Caracas as Associate Conductor and later as Artistic Director to the Orquesta Sinfónica Venezuela, where he served in that position until 1995. Presently, he maintains close contact with the Venezuelan National Youth Orchestra movement, giving advice and support in aid of poor children.
     With the opening of the Teresa Carreño Theatre in Caracas in 1984, Marturet became its first Music Director. After three years of bringing challenging and original productions to the stage, he resigned from the Theatre to dedicate himself entirely to an international career, conducting in Italy, Greece, France, Spain, England, Denmark, Holland, Korea, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Czechoslovakia, Belgium, Canada and the United States.
     He made his Asian debut with the Seoul Philharmonic in 2003, a year when he also opened the Chorin Summer Festival in Berlin and made his debut with the Buenos Aires Philharmonic in Argentina and the Florida Philharmonic in Miami.  In 2006, Maestro Marturet received a Latin Grammy nomination in the category of Best Classical Album, for conducting the Berliner Symphoniker in "Encantamento.”
     Since 2006 he has been the Music Director and Conductor of the Miami Symphony Orchestra, during his 15 year tenure Maestro Marturet has taken MISO into the world-class professional symphony of Miami developing a unique classical-crossover repertoire in alliance with great producers such as Emilio Estefan, Rudy Perez and Burt Bacharach.
     In October 2012, he was named one of the “100 most influential latinos in Miami”. The ceremony was performed by Fusionarte Association, Pan-American Foundation and Televisa publishing. This same year, in March, the flag of the United States was flown over the U.S. Capitol in honor of Eduardo Marturet, who received the Medal of Merit of the U.S. Congress in recognition for his outstanding and invaluable service to the community.

     More recently, in 2019, was included into the Genius 100 Visions Group, “an active and engaged community of 100 exceptionally imaginative and impactful human beings. Genius 100 brings accomplished and compassionate minds together to re-imagine the future - and to implement creative initiatives to improve it.

     The organization is inspired by Albert Einstein’s words: “A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move toward higher levels,” and it includes world renown luminaries like US Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, architect Frank Gehry, and conductor Zubin Mehta, all great visionaries [who] raise the bar on what is achievable within their fields. Collectively, in collaboration, they can make the impossible possible.

Maestro Marturet has been a Steinway artist since 2014.
