Sweet sounds at the Bass

If you’re looking for a relaxing Miami Beach moment, check out master violinist Gil Mogenstern’s Reflections at the Bass Museum, which starts Sunday at 3 p.m. at the museum, 2121 Park Ave.

It’s part of an musical series Morgenstern performs and organizes around the world — at the Workshop for Music Performance Concert Hall in New York City, at An Appalachian Summer Festival in Boone, North Carolina in July, 2011, and  in Italy in May.

Other concerts at the Bass happen on Feb. 13 and April 10.

Morgenstern hangs on the Beach during the cooler season with Belle Isle resident and cousin Gail Limburg.

Morgenstern is artistic director and violinist in the Reflections Concert Series. Sunday’s performance, “A Mid-Day Soirée” goes to the celebrated Parisian salon of famed salonière Winnaretta Singer, heiress to the Singer Sewing Machine fortune. Music performed will include many works commissioned by her, dedicated to her or premiered at her salon by Ravel, Fauré, Stravinsky, Debussy, de Falla, Satie and Percy Grainger. It will be performed by Deborah Selig, soprano, and Hiromi Fukuda, piano.

Says Limburg: “Gil is really a delight,
 a master violinist and very creative and multidimensional in his artistic 
approach….We are fortunate to have him here.”
