Aisslinn Nosky, performs works by Handel, Vivaldi, Bach, Corelli, Telemann and Schmeltzer, in collaboration with viola de gamba player Arnie Tanimoto and harpsichordist Robert Warner. A note to Suzuki violin students: the program begins with Handel's Sonata No. 4 in D Major, which can also be found as the fifth piece in Suzuki Book 6; and it ends with Corelli's Variations on "Follia" Op. 5 No. 12, a wonderfully different angle for Suzuki students on another Book 6 favorite, "La Folia." This is an exciting opportunity to hear these pieces done in the Baroque style, accompanied by harpsichord and continuo and with Aisslyn's tasteful and informed decorations, played with a Baroque bow and violin with gut strings.Watch below: one of today's finest Baroque violinists,
A unique and dynamic violinist, Canadian-born Aisslinn Nosky's fierce passion for early music and her skill as a soloist, director, and conductor has generated robust appreciation by press and audiences alike. She has been called “superb” by The New York Times and “a fearsomely powerful musician” by The Toronto Star. In addition to her role as Concertmaster of the Handel and Haydn Society of Boston, Aisslinn has also collaborated with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Holland Baroque and many more. Aisslinn is the first violinist of the Eybler Quartet, who explore repertoire from the early quartet literature on period instruments.
