With the Houston Symphony

“Gil Shaham is one of the foremost violinists before the public today. The soloist used every inch of available space on the stage, dancing and moving around to interact with the sections in the orchestra. His performance was virtually flawless, with a prodigious technique and silky tone throughout. He made the most difficult passages sound easy, and his free use of the bow rarely produced a compressed tone.”

“First movement modulations and transitions that are potential stumbling blocks were rendered by Shaham with a natural flow. He played the cantabile solo line in the second movement with quiet dignity while maintaining a steady pulse, with the return of the first melody given glorious and ecstatic treatment.”
