About Juilliard Baroque

Established in 2009, Juilliard Baroque, Juilliard Historical Performance’s faculty ensemble, brings together nine of the world’s most respected and accomplished period-instrument specialists. The members of Juilliard Baroque are virtuoso performers, award-winning recitalists, Grammy-nominated recording artists, soloists, and/or principals with every major international early music ensemble. Juilliard Baroque features core members: Monica Huggett, Cynthia Roberts, and Robert Mealy, violins; Phoebe Carrai, cello; Robert Nairn, double bass; Sandra Miller, flute; Gonzalo Ruiz, oboe; Dominic Teresi, bassoon; and Kenneth Weiss, harpsichord. Juilliard Baroque performs in a number of guises and has a wide-ranging repertoire from intimate chamber music concerts with just a handful of performers to larger scale works that require orchestral forces. The group has recently performed on the Music Before 1800 series, Salon/Sanctuary concert series, and at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.

 About Juilliard Historical Performance

Juilliard’s Historical Performance program enters its fourth year. Established in 2009, the full-tuition scholarship program is open to master of music degree and graduate diploma candidates and offers comprehensive study focusing on music from the 17th and 18th centuries. 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 Juilliard’s Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts and with modern instrument students outside of the Historical Performance program are an integral part of the program.

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. Secondary lessons for modern instrument majors are offered in flute, oboe, bassoon, violin, viola, viola da gamba, cello, trumpet, horn, harpsichord, and double bass.

The program features residencies and master classes with many of the leading figures in early music. Recent guests have included Fabio Biondi, William Christie and members of Les Arts Florissants, Dame Emma Kirkby and Jakob Lindberg, and Jordi Savall. Mr. Christie and Mr. Savall are returning guest artists, who work intensively with students in repertoire-focused residencies that culminate in public performances. Last season, early music experts Richard Egarr, Steven Fox, Ton Koopman, and Masaaki Suzuki led musicians from Juilliard Historical Performance.

Applications to the program are due on December 1, 2012. Auditions will be held in New York City from March 4-6, 2013. Auditions are also held in Paris, and those dates will be announced (http://www.juilliard.edu/degrees-programs/music/hp/index.php).
