From Mozart's mercurial grace, and the endless wit of Haydn, to the explosive, revolutionary strains of Beethoven, this concert brings together the three giants of late eighteenth century Vienna. The arrangement of Haydn's Opus 88 quartet by Mozart's oboist Joseph Fiala serves as the model for Gonzalo X. Ruiz's new arrangement of Beethoven's String Quartet Opus 18, No. 1. The program is rounded out with Mozart’s Adagio and Fugue in D minor and Flute Quartet K. 285 arranged for oboe in C major.
About the ensemble:
House of Time, known for their “fluency and command” (San Francisco Classical Voice) is dedicated to both well-known and underperformed repertoire of the 17th through the 21st century played on period instruments. Members and guests include Juilliard and Curtis faculty and alumni of The Juilliard School, as well as prize-winners of major international competitions. 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); Tatiana Daubek, is known for her "sleekly elegant playing" (Gazettes Long Beach); Avi Stein, one of NYC’s finest, is described by The New York Times as “a brilliant organ soloist” and Beiliang Zhu, is described by the New Yorker as “elegant, sensual and stylishly wild.”
Currently in their 5th season as ensemble in residence at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, home audiences continue to grow. House of Time has been presented by the Berkeley Early Music Festival, Czech Center New York, Early Music Festival: NYC, San Diego and San Francisco Early Music Societies, The University Club in NYC and the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments. Future appearances this season include concerts on the prominent series, Music Before 1800. House of Time as a group and individuals continue to give free outreach concerts at Mount Sinai Concerts for Patients in New York City and may be seen giving impromptu pop up concerts in casual venues such as local cafes.
