Description

Since its founding in 2009, Juilliard415, the school’s principal period-instrument ensemble, has made significant contributions to the musical life of New York and beyond, bringing major figures in the field of early music to lead performances of both rare and canonical works of the 17th and 18th centuries. Among the many distinguished guests who have led 415 are William Christie, Ton Koopman, Harry Bicket, Nicholas McGegan, Christopher Hogwood, Jordi Savall, Lars Ulrik Mortensen and Monica Huggett. In 2011, the ensemble made its Carnegie Hall debut, accompanying David Daniels and Dorothea Röschmann in a program of Handel arias — a concert the New York Times called one of the season’s best. 415’s performance of Handel’s Il Trionfo del Tempo, led by maestro Christie, earned this same distinction in 2012.

Together with Juilliard’s Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts, every year, 415 presents fully-staged operas and full-scale oratorios. Recent offerings include Handel’s Radamisto, Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, both Passions and the Magnificat of Bach and Cavalli’s La Calisto. Recently, in a joint venture with the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, Jane Glover conducted 415 in Gluck’s Iphigénie en Aulide.

Touring extensively nationally and internationally, too, 415 has performed all along the East Coast and throughout Italy, Japan, Southeast Asia and the U.K., where a concert with its closest musical partner, the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3. Other 2016–17 tours find the group in Holland with the Royal Conservatoire of the Hague for Bach’s Mass in B minor, Ton Koopman conducting, and in New Zealand with Bach specialist Masaaki Suzuki for a 10-concert span.

Domestic highlights of 415’s 2016–17 include: a celebration of the Italian concerto led by Rachel Podger on the “Music Before 1800” series; symphonies of Haydn with maestra Huggett; fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout leading Mozart symphonies and concerti; an all-Rameau program with William Christie and Paul Agnew; Handel’s Agrippina, conducted by Laurence Cummings in his Juilliard debut.
