Does music truly have the power to stir our emotions? Baroque composers believed so and strove to excite the passions of the soul through their works.
The “perpetually fabulous” (Boston Globe) Canadian violinist Aisslinn Nosky returns to direct a program revealing the peaks and valleys of the human emotional landscape—from the wistful yearning of Locatelli’s Concerto grosso in C Minor to the buoyant cheer of Telemann’s Orchestral Suite in B-flat Major.
Vivaldi conjures up phantoms and dreamscapes in his evocative Concerto for bassoon “La Notte” (The Night), featuring Tafelmusik’s own Dominic Teresi, and a bold Overture by Fasch contrasts with a radiant Chaconne celebrating love from Marais’ Alcyone.
The grand finale of our journey through the gamut of baroque passions? Bach’s masterful Concerto for 2 violins in D Minor featuring Aisslinn Nosky and one of Tafelmusik’s newest core members, Johanna Novom, as soloists. Catch this program before Tafelmusik tours it in the United States in 2024.
Directed by Aisslinn Nosky, violin
