Aisslinn Nosky: “Toronto’s Eric Clapton of the violin” (Toronto Star)

Violinist Aisslinn Nosky is such an ambassador and in her time as our Guest Artist-in-Residence has connected effortlessly with Winnipeggers. A former member of Tafelmusik, Canada’s premier period orchestra, Aisslinn speaks eloquently on the history of Baroque in the many interviews and pre-concert talks she’s done here. But even her performances feel illuminating, like a revelation. Aisslinn tends to play-conduct, meaning she’s juggling both soloing and conducting. The task, demanding she lead the piece both from inside and outside the orchestra, could only be handled by someone who also knows the piece inside out. It’s an exercise of supreme control, but one she performs so expressively we feel we are seeing the music, in all its rich polyphony, as she does. Her performances are like masterclasses for the baroque lover no matter their level of music education.
