“Joseph Horowitz is a force in classical music today, a prophet and an agitator”

The New York Times (2005)

“Both on the page and the stage Horowitz is a formidable presence whose ideology is hard to miss.
At the root of his work is his belief that American culture has been crippled
by the New World’s unreflexive worship of Europe.”

Gramophone Magazine (2003)



Named a best book of the year by The Financial Times, The Chicago Tribune, and Kirkus Reviews


“Horowitz has taught me to listen to Black classical music as what the most
American of classical music is. His lesson should resound.”

— John McWhorter, The New York Times





NPR DOCUMENTARIES

It’s become my good fortune to regularly produce 50-minute radio documentaries for the National Public Radio newsmagazine “1A” — programs that transcend soundbites.
Some listener feedback:
“I have rarely heard a more challenging radio program”

“I feel moved to tell you that this is one of the most important and moving broadcasts I've ever heard on NPR”

COMING THIS JULY:
  • I'm curating a “Dvorak's Prophecy” festival at the Brevard Music Festival (July 8 to 15)

  • I'm directing a Brevard Project seminar/think tank (July 11 to 16) more info
