May 2021: London Phil (and IDAGIO last call)!

This month feels like the calm before the storm…life is relatively quiet, but summer dates are being announced and I’m thrilled to share more additions to the calendar with you here!

Beyond the IDAGIO Beethoven stream I mentioned below, which is available until May 8, there’s a new broadcast on the horizon from across the pond! From May 12-19 I welcome you to join me and the London Philharmonic for a fantastic new performance of the Tchaikovsky Concerto…oh how I missed playing this live! The concert was performed at the Southbank Centre in London just last month, so it’s the most recent Gil Shaham feature out there. You can find it for free here on Marquee TV.

April 2021: IDAGIO with the Knights!

Hello friends! Our celebration of Beethoven with The Knights continues! Following the successful release of our Beethoven/Brahms recording last month (here), we can’t wait to share this new arrangement of the Beethoven concerto with the world on IDAGIO’s Global Concert Hall! The broadcast, which premieres here on April 17, will be filled with conversation too, and will be available on-demand until early May. I’m so glad to be back at Boston’s WGBH Studios to create this with friends after the solo program we shared there on IDAGIO in the fall!

If you’re looking for something beyond the classics, it’s also not too late to tune into my free livestream with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. You can hear the great mix of violin music by Pärt and Boulogne (Chevalier de Saint-Georges) until April 26 here!

Visit here for more upcoming performances…can’t wait to see you all at more concerts soon!

March 2021: Newest Recording & Concerts in NY & AZ (Live)!

As I mentioned in my last post, a major highlight for this month is the new release of this awesome album of the Beethoven and Brahms violin concerti with The Knights, out on my label Canary Classics. I’m so excited to share my first-ever Beethoven concerto recording and can’t wait to hear what you think!

Tied in with this release are two exciting events with the 92nd Street Y, first a deep dive into the Beethoven concerto on March 3 with my pals and Artistic Directors of The Knights Colin & Eric Jacobsen, moderated by former WQXR Host Naomi Lewin (details here), and then a performance with Colin, Eric, my wife Adele, and musicians from the Knights of the Beethoven Concerto and an amazing string quartet by Boulogne on March 14 (details here).

Later this month I’m also beyond thrilled to give my first in-person recital in well over a year! Whether you live in the Phoenix area or wish to watch the live-stream, I hope you can safely join me for this recital on March 20, which includes some favorites from recent recitals as well as Fratres, a great work by Arvo Pärt that I recently performed with the Boston Symphony. I get the chance to share that same work with you again soon, along with a great concerto by our friend Boulogne with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, which premieres online here March 26 and remains available through the end of the season.
