About House of Time
House of Time, known for its "fluency and command" (San Francisco Classical Voice) and "fine playing, cohesiveness and creativity" (Early Music America) is dedicated to both well-known and under-performed repertoire of the 17th through the 21st Centuries played on period instruments. Members and guests include faculty and alumni of The Juilliard School, as well as prize-winners of major international competitions. Using the instruments and techniques of the past to express the vivid passions in the music, House of Time has moved audiences and keeps them coming back for more. Critics have declared oboist, Gonzalo X. Ruiz, "one of only a handful of truly superb baroque oboists in the world" (Alte Musik Aktuell), while violinist Tatiana Daubek is known for her "sleekly elegant playing" (Gazettes Long Beach) and soloistic precision (Early Music America). By performing quality concerts showcasing world-class musicians on period instruments, House of Time presents our Classical music heritage in a way that not only entertains but also allows greater understanding of its cultural context. By replacing the traditional pre-concert lecture with personable and accessible remarks from the stage, the ensemble breaks down the barrier between performer and audience, and gives casual listeners, as well as experts, the opportunity to understand the intersection between musicology and performance. By committing to performing its series in the Washington Heights as well as Lincoln Center neighborhoods, and making tickets available and affordable through a variety of outlets, House of Time seeks to bring the musical jewels of the past and the thrill of live performance available to all New Yorkers.https://www.houseoftimemusic.org/
