No matter what repertoire he has planned for his season, Gil invariable always performs Brahms’s iconic Violin Concerto. After recent performances of the work with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Orange County Register’s Timothy Mangan declared “The Brahms was all his, easy to play it seemed, and so dashed off with a transfixing array of finesse and grit. This was probably the most rhythmically zesty account of the score that you’re ever likely to hear… . A delight.”
On May 23-25, Gil brings this violin masterpiece to the Philadelphia Orchestra. Led by music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the program features works by Schumann, Jánacek, and Dvorák.
