Arnie Tanimoto_Gwendolyn Toth_Adam CockerhamSuitte d'un Goût Étranger.

Join us for an afternoon of strange and foreign music, as seen through the eyes and ears of 18th-century France: Marin Marais' monumental collection of virtuosic character pieces from his fourth book of pièces de viole.

Arnie Tanimoto, viola da gamba
Gwendolyn Toth, harpsichord
Adam Cockerham, theorbo

Gold medalist of the 7th International Bach-Abel Competition, Arnie Tanimoto is equally at home on the viola da gamba and baroque cello. Described by The New York Times as a “fine instrumental soloist” he has performed and recorded with Barthold Kuijken, the Boston Early Music Festival Ensemble, and the Smithsonian Consort of Viols. As a teacher, he serves on faculty at the Mountainside Baroque Summer Academy as well as maintaining a private studio. He holds degrees and certificates from Oberlin Conservatory, the Eastman School of Music, The Juilliard School, and the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.
