Christopher Hogwood conducted repertoire ranging from the baroque to contemporary, always with the prevailing philosophy of revealing the original sound-world of the composer. He founded The Academy of Ancient Music in 1973, and gained international recognition for his performances of baroque and early classical repertoire with period instruments. The NYBDC is grateful to Hogwood for his numerous invitations to create new productions and perform with him at the Boston’s Handel & Haydn Society, the Mozart Festival in Washington, DC and at the Barbican in London from 1989 through 2004. In 2014 he died in London and we all miss his presence and guidance.
