Qobuz, the music lovers’ Hi-Res streaming service, has announced its sponsorship of Juilliard LIVE’s Le Monde Galant virtual concert. The concert showcases live-streamed and on-demand student performances for a global audience. 

The June 29th release, out now, features an exclusive performance from the Juilliard415 period-instrument ensemble. The hour-long concert allows listeners and viewers to travel back in time through the perspective of some of the foremost 17th and 18th century composers. The Juilliard LIVE’s Le Monde Galant virtual concert is available to watch for free on YouTube which is a really nice gift for aspiring music students to enjoy.

Audiences will travel from the United Kingdom to the Ottoman Empire and the Middle East to the Americas as imagined by Jean-Marie Leclair, Georg Philipp Telemann, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and more.  With the help of Qobuz, the performance was professionally captured in Juilliard’s Peter J. Sharp Theater in May 2021 and edited with the school’s state-of-the-art video and audio recording equipment.

The concert premiered on June 29, 2021 on Juilliard’s Media Gallery and YouTube Channel, and will be available for on-demand viewing for a period of one month. 

Robert Mealy, director of Historical Performance at Juilliard, said of the sponsorship:

“Nicholas McGegan created a wonderful world tour for Juilliard415, the virtuoso baroque orchestra of Juilliard’s Historical Performance department, in this year when none of us could travel! His program takes us through the folk traditions of 18th-century Europe, with visits to France, Italy, Spain, Scotland, and the fascinating melodies of Eastern Europe. After a visit to Moscow, we go eEast to the Ottoman Empire and Persia, to China, and then to the Incas of Peru, finally finishing at the banks of the Mississippi.

This was one of the highlights of our season with Juilliard415. We’re thrilled to have Qobuz, which shares our commitment to quality and excellence, sponsor this performance, and help broaden its reach to audiences across the globe.”  

Dan Mackta, U.S. Managing Director of Qobuz, said “Qobuz jumped at the opportunity to support Juilliard and its educational community. We offer our utmost respect for the music and admiration for those that create it.” 

The Julliard415 concert is an extension of Qobuz’ ongoing effort to super-serve the biggest music fans. Earlier this year, Qobuz officially partnered with Zappa Records to release nine Frank Zappa albums exclusively in Hi-Res for the first time, and also became the only service available to stream in Hi-Res on Sonos. In addition, Christian McBride recorded an exclusive EP for Qobuz, The Q Sessions.
