Mozart in Prague
House of Time spirits us to Prague, the city that welcomed Mozart with far more warmth than he received back home in Vienna. The group performs a trio and quartets by Mozart as well as his expressive and richly scored Adagio for English Horn and Strings in C Major, K.580a. Bohemian music is represented by two pieces of František Krommer—his Variations on a Czech Folk Song, and his Quartet No. 1 in C Major; and by Vaclav Pichl’s String Trio in A Major.
“The musicians established their fluency and command early on… The program carried the implicit message that great music is never an exit ramp out of reality. It’s an exploration of human experience in its widest and deepest dimensions.”—San Francisco Classical Voice

Artist Bios and Program
The musicians of House of Time, known for their “fluency and command” (San Francisco Classical Voice), are dedicated to playing both well-known and underperformed repertory of the 17th through the 21st century 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. They are currently in their fifth season as ensemble-in-residence at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. House of Time has been presented by the Berkeley Early Music Festival, Czech Center New York, Early Music Festival: NYC, the San Diego and San Francisco Early Music Societies, The University Club in NYC, and the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments. House of Time continues 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.
