About Juilliard415

Since its founding in 2009, Juilliard415, the school’s principal period-instrument ensemble, has made significant contributions to musical life in 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 Juilliard415 are Masaaki Suzuki, Ton Koopman, Harry Bicket, Nicholas McGegan, the late Christopher Hogwood, and Monica Huggett. In 2011 the ensemble made its Carnegie Hall debut in a concert that was cited as one of the ten best of the season by The New York Times. A 2012 performance of Handel’s Il trionfo del tempo under the baton of William Christie earned this same distinction.

Juilliard415 tours extensively in the U.S. and abroad, with notable appearances at the Boston Early Music Festival, the Leipzig Bachfest, and the Utrecht Early Music Festival, where Juilliard was the first-ever conservatory-in-residence. With its frequent musical collaborator, the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, Juilliard415 has performed throughout Italy, Japan, Southeast Asia, and the United Kingdom.

Other recent milestones include a fully staged production of Handel’s Radamisto; a tour of Charpentier’s Actéon with William Christie; concerts in New York and Miami of incidental music to Shakespeare plays in collaboration with the Juilliard Drama Division, conducted by Jordi Savall; and the rare opportunity to hear both Bach Passions in successive months.

The 2014–15 season brought return visits from William Christie for Handel’s La resurrezione, Robert Mealy in a program of virtuoso Italian Baroque music, Monica Huggett in an all-Beethoven program, and Jordi Savall directing a themed concert called Amid the Charms of Nature, as well as debuts from Kristian Bezuidenhout and British violinist Rachel Podger, and an historic collaboration among the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Program, Juilliard’s Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts, and Juilliard415 for performances of Gluck’s Iphigénie en Aulide, Jane Glover conducting.

During the 2015–16 season, Juilliard415 gives concerts in Vancouver and the Bay Area with Nicholas McGegan; in Portland, OR and New Haven with the Yale Schola Cantorum, David Hill conducting; collaborates with the Marcus Institute in a staged production of Cavalli’s La Calisto; and celebrates the holidays with Bach’s Magnificat and conductor Richard Egarr.
