The PostClassical Ensemble is presenting a multi-event festival titled Dvořák and America, which culminates in a concert March 1, 2013 at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the College Park campus of the University of Maryland. Included in the concert is the new “Hiawatha Melodrama,” for narrator and orchestra, a result of collaboration among Dvorak scholar Michael Beckerman, PostClassical Ensemble Music Director Angel Gil-Ordóñez, and PostClassical Ensemble Artistic Director Joseph Horowitz.
Mr. Horowitz and Maestro Gil-Ordóñez visited the Classical WETA studios to chat with Marilyn Cooley about the piece, and about the fascinating background of Dvořák’s relationship with the United States and American music. Abundant musical examples enrich this exciting look into our musical heritage.
