Peter Gram Swing Lecture Series: Joseph Horowitz - "Artists in Exile"
Start Date: 3/26/2009Start Time: 4:30 PM
End Date: 3/26/2009End Time: 6:30 PM

Event Description
Joseph Horowitz is an artistic consultant,  teacher, and author. He is one of the most prominent and widely  published writers on topics in American music. As an orchestral  administrator and advisor, he has been a pioneering force in the development of thematic programming and new concert formats.
 
Mr. Horowitz's first seven books -- including Classical Music in America: A History, named one of the best books of 2005 by The Economist  -- offer a detailed history and analysis of American symphonic culture,  its achievements, challenges, and prospects for the future.

Of his new book, Artists in Exile: How Refugees from War and Revolution Transformed the American Performing Arts  (HarperCollins, Feb. 2008), Arlene Croce has written: "Joseph Horowitz  has taken on a job which very much needed doing, and which needed doing specifically by him. He has made a thorough going analysis of that special European emigration in the last century which so deeply  influenced, and was influenced by, American culture. Bringing his superbly cultivated, coordinated interdisciplinary approach to bear on  the largest possible scale—from the harbinger Dvorak to Stravinsky and Balanchine, from Paris, Berlin, and St. Petersburg to Hollywood and  Broadway; from the Russian Revolution to the Cold War—he gathers dozens of extraordinary lives into a chronicle of epic force."
