House of Time: The Big Bang (The Lounge)

The Big Bang
Rameau’s Zais and Handel’s Fireworks 
The daring, impressionistic overture of Zaïs depicts the creation of the world, proceeding from chaos to order, while the dances that follow present the kaleidoscopic world of 18th century ballet music through the lens of Rameau’s colorful wit. Then sparks fly as House of Time takes you to Baroque London with its version of Handel’s Fireworks Music. Handel’s paean to peace is transformed into exciting and elegant chamber music in Gonzalo X. Ruiz’s arrangement.

House of Time: Classical Zeitgeist (The Lounge)

Classical Zeitgeist: Mozart and Haydn go traveling
The two greatest composers of the late 18th century had mutual admiration for one another and found their greatest success while traveling, making them pioneers of music freelancing. Haydn’s London Trios were written during his second trip to England where he was received as a veritable superstar, while Mozart’s radical Oboe Quartet was tailor-made in Munich for his friend, the oboe virtuoso Ramm.
