Gil Shaham, violin & Akira Eguchi, piano
“A virtuoso and a player of deeply intense sincerity…one of today’s preeminent violinists” – New York Times
Shaham’s “go-for-broke passion” and his “silvery tone, spot-on intonation and meticulously molded phrasing” (Washington Post) are perfectly showcased in an eclectic program ranging from the drama and fireworks of Avner Dorman’s Nigunim to the matchless harmonic intricacy of Bach. As the Baltimore Sun wrote of Shaham’s Bach in recital: “It’s hardly news that Shaham is an impeccable violinist, one capable of bringing out the mechanic and the majesty of Bach in equal measure. Still, it was great to be startled all over again by the brilliance of his playing, the penetrating power of his interpretations.”
