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. The many distinguished guests who have led Juilliard415 include Harry Bicket, William Christie, the late Christopher Hogwood, Monica Huggett, Ton Koopman, Nicholas McGegan, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Jordi Savall, and Masaaki Suzuki.
As part of the 2019–20 season, Juilliard415 will be working with distinguished artists Paul Agnew, Kristian Bezuidenhout, William Christie, Richard Egarr, Nicholas McGegan, Robert Mealy, Rachel Podger, and Masaaki Suzuki, and making his Juilliard415 debut, Pablo Heras-Casado. The season also features international appearances in Paris at the Philharmonie de Paris and in Germany at the Göttingen Handel Festival as well as a second tour of New Zealand.
