The great Canadian baroque n’ roller Aisslinn Nosky is featured at an MCO concert on a double-bill. This time her interlocutor is the remarkable American cellist Guy Fishman. A musician whose playing is described as “electrifying” by the New York Times and as “beautiful” by the Boston Herald, Fishman is formerly principal cellist of the New York String Orchestra at Carnegie Hall. Now he is principal cellist of the Handel and Haydn Society in Boston and graces audiences across North America with his unique gifts as a soloist.
Formerly a member of Tafelmusik, Aisslinn Nosky is now the Concertmaster of the Handel and Haydn Society and focuses on her solo career, which has taken so many interesting directions. At her last two MCO concerts, the charismatic performer practically bourrée’d, chaconne’d, and danced her way through the tempestuous music of Haydn and other Baroque masters. Clearly, it’s not only her technical virtuosity that makes her “Toronto’s Eric Clapton of the violin,” (Toronto Star) but also her rock and roll approach to the Baroque. Spellbound MCO audiences also know her as a crack orchestra leader, and at this concert she reprises her role as player-conductor.
