Their chamber performance will conclude our 2015-2016 concert season. Stay tuned for information on our upcoming 2016-2017 season!
The Israeli-born cellist Guy Fishman was recently appointed Principal Cellist of the Handel & Haydn Society, with which he made his Symphony Hall solo debut in 2005. Mr. Fishman is in demand as an early music specialist in the United States and Europe, performing in recital and with The Arcadia Players, Apollo’s Fire, Emmanuel Music, the Boston Museum Trio, and El Mundo, as well as performing on standard cello with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, The Mark Morris Dance Group, the Albany Symphony Orchestra, and the Colorado Music Festival, among others.
He has performed in recital with Dawn Upshaw, Gilbert Kalish, Eliot Fisk, and Mark Peskanov, and has toured and recorded with pop artist Natalie Merchant, in venues such as Boston’s Jordan Hall and Sanders Theater, and Weill Recital Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, and BargeMusic in New York. He has appeared at the Tanglewood, Kneisel Hall, Chautauqua, Aston Magna, Connecticut Early Music, and Musicorda festivals. He was a member of the New Fromm Players at Tanglewood, principal cellist of the New York String Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, and has performed in fringe recitals at the Boston Early Music Festival. His playing has been praised as “plangent” by the Boston Globe, “electrifying” by the New York Times, and “beautiful….noble” by the Boston Herald.
Aisslinn Nosky has been a member of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra since 2005 and was appointed Concertmaster of the Handel and Haydn Society in 2011.
