Gil joins another longtime friend and musical partner Gustavo Dudamel, when he performs the Brahms Violin Concerto with the Los Angeles Philharmonic on February 21, 22, 23 and 24. Their close affinity is such that it was the conductor who was chosen to surprise Gil on stage during a “Live From Lincoln Center” concert, and present him – wholly unexpectedly – with the hugely prestigious Avery Fisher Prize.

US Recital tour featuring Baolcom premiere, and works by Milone and Dorman
A champion of contemporary music, Shaham has recently given life to several new commissions. The centerpiece of his upcoming duo recital tour is the world premiere of Suite No. 2 by William Bolcom, a nine-movement work filled with brilliant musical ideas and emotions: a masterpiece with the profundity and craftsmanship that is characteristic of Bolcom’s music . The premiere will take place at the Aspen Winter Festival on February 5, with additional performances in San Diego (Feb 7), San Francisco (Feb 8), and Boston (Feb 10).
Also featured on the tour are two other contemporary works written for and recently premiered by Gil: Julian Milone’s In the Country of Lost Things… and Avner Dorman’s Nigunim.
