Photo: Tafelmusik in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia



During the second half of October, 2010, the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra went on a mini-tour of Asia—traveling to Beijing, China, Seoul, Korea, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

And though the first leg of the tour in Kuala Lumpur took no more than two days, they managed to give three performances of a program known as the Galileo Project.

On October 19th, at some point prior to the concert or intermission at Petronas Philharmonic Hall, a famous American actor took the photograph below, entitled “Silence.”

His name is Jonathan Kos-Read, considered to be the most prominent non-Asian actor working in China today (a veritable Chinese-household name).

I found the photo by complete accident after reading an NPR feature on Kos-Read and his highly-successful career, which then led me to Googling him, finding his Flickr portfolio, and discovering a beautiful image of Aisslin Nosky, Tafelmusik violinist and newly-appointed concertmaster of the Handel and Haydn Society.

I immediately knew it was Nosky because of her signature hair color.
