PostClassical Ensemble opens their 2016-17 season at Sydney Harmon Hall on Saturday, September 17th at 7:30pm with a program titled Mozart, "Amadeus", and the Gran Partita." Mozart's B-flat Wind Serenade shattered convention in its day by offering a 50-minute work for the concert hall in lieu of innocuous tunes to accompany a stroll on the lawn. Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton talks with PostClassical Executive Director Joseph Horowitz and Music Director Angel Gil-Ordóñez about this a one-of-a-kind program that includes an actor, a wind ensemble, a courtly minuet, and new choreography by Igal Perry performed by the Washington Ballet Studio Company.
