(b 1948 )

PostClassical Ensemble Executive Director Joseph Horowitz has long been a pioneer in classical music programming. In the 1990s, as executive director of the Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra, he pioneered in cross-disciplinary “thematic programming.” In 2008 he inaugurated the New York Philharmonic’s “Inside the Music” series, writing, hosting and producing programmes about Tchaikovsky, Dvořák, Brahms and Stravinsky. Horowitz is also the award-winning author of ten books mainly dealing with the institutional history of classical music in the United States. Both his Classical Music in America: A History (2005) and Artists in Exile: How Refugees from 20th Century War and Revolution Transformed the American Performing Arts (2008) were named best books of the year by The Economist; both deal with Dvořák. Horowitz has curated more than a dozen Dvořák festivals, and directed an NEH National Education Project and an NEH Teacher Training Institute, both dedicated to “Dvořák and America”. He is also the creator, with Peter Bogdanoff, of a “visual presentation” for the New World Symphony that has been presented by the New York Philharmonic and many other orchestras. He is the recipient of a special commendation from the Czech Parliament for his “exceptional explorations of Dvořák’s historic sojourn in America.” His website is www.josephhorowitz.com. His blog: www.artsjournal.com/uq.
