About Christopher Hogwood

Christopher Hogwood is equally active in 19th and 20th-century repertoire. A celebrated conductor, musicologist, and keyboard player, his catalogue of over 200 recordings with the Academy of Ancient Music on Decca includes the complete Mozart and Beethoven symphonies. His Secret Handel CD was recently awarded a Diapason d’Or and a series of neo-classical recordings with Kammerorchester Basel for SONY/BMG was described as “balanced and thought provoking with beautifully pointed and incisively characterized performances.”

Mr. Hogwood was worked with most of the leading symphony orchestras and opera houses in the world. As a musicologist he covers music from the 16th to the 20th centuries, and is currently re-editing the overtures and symphonies of Mendelssohn. A revised edition of his classic biography of Handel was issued in 2007. Mr. Hogwood is honorary professor of music at the University of Cambridge and visiting professor at the Royal Academy of Music, London.

About Juilliard’s Historical Performance Program

Juilliard’s Historical Performance program enters its second year and welcomed 11 new students this fall to the program, bringing the total number of students enrolled in the program to 24. The program is open to master of music degree and graduate diploma candidates and offers comprehensive study focusing on music from the High Baroque through the Early Classical eras. The performance-oriented curriculum fosters an informed, vital understanding of the many issues unique to period instrument performance with the level of technical excellence and musical integrity for which Juilliard is renowned. Joint projects and collaborations with the School’s Dance and Drama Divisions and Vocal Arts program, and with modern instrument students outside of the Historical Performance program, will be encouraged.

The master of music degree program requires a two-year residency; the graduate diploma program with a major in Historical Performance is a two-year, non-degree course of study. Along with weekly lessons and frequent performances, the curriculum also includes core classes covering a broad range of issues related directly to performance, including style and interpretation, historical and cultural contexts, analytical methods and treatises, historical dance, improvisation, continuo improvisation/figured bass reading, and ornamentation.

Guest residencies are an important part of the Historical Performance program’s annual schedule, as are master classes with experts from around the world.

For further information on the Historical Performance program, contact Juilliard’s Admissions Office at (212) 799-5000, ext. 223 or go to www.juilliard.edu.
