"One of today's preeminent violinists."

The New York Times

Recital
Gil Shaham, violin
Akira Eguchi, piano

His lustrous tone matched by masterful phrasing and supremely elegant technique, Gil Shaham is among the world's preeminent violinists. He dazzled audiences at his last Berkeley visit in the 2015–16 season, when he performed Bach's complete solo violin works accompanied by mesmerizing slow-motion video projections: "Joyousness, above all, characterized Shaham's performance...his sound was sustained and powerful...a Bach experience like no other" (San Francisco Classical Voice). Shaham is joined here by longtime collaborator, pianist Akira Eguchi.
