Annie-Gard-460x840Annie loves sharing the joy of music with as many people as she can, whether that be from the the stage of Alice Tully Hall at the Lincoln Centre with her colleagues in Juilliard415, as the teacher of a group violin class or as a chamber musician performing in the home of a supporter. Her passion for the tango and its music has taken her to Buenos Aires to study both the music and the dance, but it is the exploration of the Historically Informed Performance movement that occupies most of her time. From the compositions of Monteverdi to Brahms, Annie finds the process of rediscovering this music equipped with a deeper understanding of the aesthetics in which it was written, together with the new facets of expression that become available alongside this knowledge, fascinating. She hopes always to make the music more understandable and emotionally captivating to her audiences.
