Washington, D.C.

PostClassical Ensemble, now in its ninth season, is an experimental musical laboratory testing the limits of orchestral programming. Their concerts regularly incorporate popular music, folk music, vernacular music and more, combining the music itself with insights into the people and the times that produced it. Artistic Director Joseph Horowitz has done extensive research into Dvořák and his body of work, resulting in a book, an educational project about America in Dvořák’s time and this program. Musical works include String Serenade, American Suite (orchestral version) and Hiawatha Melodrama. The latter work, a creation of Horowitz and Dvořák scholar Michael Beckerman, was inspired by the Longfellow poem “The Song of Hiawatha” and also draws on elements of Dvořák’s New World Symphony.
