The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
Fortas Chamber Music Concerts

As the major presenter of Spanish concert music in both DC and New York City, PostClassical Ensemble has long made a cause of the lesser-known works of Falla, and of the master Catalonian modernists Montsalvatge and Gerhard. We return to the Kennedy Center with a program including the American premiere of a Montsalvatge sinfonietta inspired by the paintings of Salvador Dali.
