Established in 2009, Juilliard Baroque brings together some of the world’s most respected and accomplished period-instrument specialists and is the faculty ensemble of Juilliard Historical Performance, the School’s graduate degree programme in period instrument performance. 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 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. Juilliard Baroque’s début season included performances in New York and Madrid. Of the ensemble’s performance of the ‘Brandenburg’ Concertos, The New York Times reported: “Its traversal was an explosion of energy, with consistently brisk tempos (even, comparatively speaking, in the slow movements), sharply articulated rhythms, and textures that combined an appealing period-instrument grittiness with the kind of transparency that brings every strand of Bach’s counterpoint into focus.” The group made its début at the Library of Congress, in Washington, DC, in 2012 in a concert featuring Bach’s A Musical Offering and has appeared on tour and in concert in New York on many occasions, including return engagements in the Music Before 1800 series.
