April sees the release of new Canary Classics Album

Screen Shot 2013-02-28 at 11.57.37 AM copyIn April 2013, Canary Classics will release Nigunim, a new recording – featuring Gil alongside his sister, pianist Orli Shaham – that celebrates the “soulful melodies” of their Jewish heritage. The CD features a world premiere recording of a new work by Israeli composer Avner Dorman and includes music by Joseph Achron, Ernest Bloch, Joseph Bonime and longtime collaborator and friend, composer John Williams.

Gil performs Brahms with the LA Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel

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.
