I'm really looking forward to our Front Row Washington program on September 19th at 9PM ET. It features the critically acclaimed (and local!) PostClassical Ensemble and conductor Angel Gil-Ordóñez in a concert of music by Franz Liszt and Silvestre Revueltas.
PostClassical Ensemble conductor Angel Gil-Ordóñez is particularly drawn to Revueltas, saying “When you listen to Revueltas, you smell the marketplace and taste the tamales. You are in a cantina – a piano bar – drinking tequila. And you are in a culture saturated with music, with marimbas and mariachis. Music is a continuous component of Mexican life, and the Homenaje a Federico García Lorca is a perfect example of it.”
