PostClassical Ensemble was founded in 2003 as an experimental orchestral laboratory by Angel Gil-Ordónez and Joseph Horowitz. Its tagline—“More than an Orchestra”—suggests its mission. PCE programming is thematic and cross-disciplinary, and maintains links to universities. Many PCE programmes incorporate film, dance, or theatre. The ensemble has presented more than 100 events in the DC area, and also toured festival programs to New York, Seattle and Chicago. At the Brooklyn Academy of Music, it presented the sold-out American stage première of Falla’s El Corregidor y la Molinera. For Naxos, it has created two DVDs presenting three classic American documentaries—The Plow that Broke the Plains and The River (2.110521), and The City (2.110231).
