February 2020: Celebrating Birthdays with Orchestra

February is a birthday-filled month for Gil, and not just to celebrate his own! The month starts with performances of the Mendelssohn Concerto together with the Orchestre de Paris and Christoph Eschenbach in celebration of the Maestro’s 80th birthday. Gil then performs the February-born composer’s concerto again with the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester and conductor James Gaffigan in Lucerne, Lugano, and Udine. Gil closes out the month back in the US to perform the Beethoven Concerto, a fitting nod to the 250th anniversary of the great composer’s birth, with The Knights under conductor Eric Jacobsen on tour at The Society for the Four Arts in Palm Beach.

Gil first returns to the Dallas Symphony to perform the Dvořák Concerto, then heads to Baltimore and Bethesda to perform the Mendelssohn Concerto with the Baltimore Symphony. To conclude the month, Gil takes part in the New York Philharmonic’s Lunar New Year festivities by reuniting with conductor Long Yu, whom he toured with this past summer, for a performance of the Chen/He Butterfly Lovers Concerto.

December 2019: Brahms, Bartók, & Brussels

Gil begins this month with a warm escape to Houston! While his performance of the Brahms concerto marks his another friendly return (his 12th visit, in fact!) with the orchestra, this month is particularly special as the symphony revives its chamber music series with symphony musicians and features Gil on the Brahms Clarinet Quintet (December 6) in between three orchestral performances (December 5, 7, 8). Gil then jets off to Belgium to perform Bartók’s powerful second concerto with the Brussels Philharmonic under Music Director Stéphane Denève.
