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. 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); 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 6th season, House of Time is ensemble in residence at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. They have been presented by the Berkeley Early Music Festival, Czech Center New York, Early Music Festival: NYC, Music Before 1800, San Diego and San Francisco Early Music Societies, The University Club in NYC and the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments. Future appearances include concerts and masterclasses presented by the Early Music Series at Michigan State University. 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. House of Time is also on the roster of GEMS Live! Artists.

Angelic inspiration and demonic possession take turns driving some of the most dramatic works of the Baroque. Tartini claimed that his fiendish "Devil's Trill Sonata" was played to him by the devil himself sitting at the foot of his bed, while Biber's "Passacaglia" depicts the protectio of a guardian angel. In Vivaldi's "Damnation Sonata" the oboe becomes a wayward soul dragged down to hell. Trios by Arcangelo Corelli, and Marin Marais, who "played like an angel" contrast with works by Antoine Forqueray, who "played like a demon". Don't miss House of Time's exploration of these mythic extremes in baroque music, capped by a special edition of La Folia (The Madness of Spain)

"Two devilish dances - Liszt's Mephisto Waltz, No. 1 and Ravel's La Valse - are contrasted by an excerpt from the angelic Années de Pélerinage by Liszt and Tombeau de Couperin by Ravel."

Composers Anthony Davis and Earl Howard are presented in a set of structured improvisation.

the InterpretationsSeries is dedicated to nurturing the relationship of composers with the growing community of new music virtuoso performers. Tickets are $20 adult / $15 students & seniors, and available on www.Roulette.com and www.Interpretations.info.

For the first time since 2011 (and what was Davis’ 60th birthday), Davis and Howard will reconvene a quartet built on long-standing associations to present two sets of music built on complex rhythms and modulating textures. Featuring bassist Mark Dresser, and multi-reeds virtuoso J.D. Parran, the group will present new works from both Davis and Howard, for quartet, duo, and solo, including Howard’s Curtis, for solo Kurzweill 2600 and saxophone, and Davis’ Maelstrom 1 & 2 for quartet.

A solo piano work from Davis’ The Goddess Variations (1999), as well as a duo piece with Mark Dresser will also be performed.
