With the San Francisco Symphony

“Shaham’s treatment of the solo part has grown progressively more ingratiating and soft-hued with time, without losing any of the ardor or expressive urgency on which it depends. In the first movement, he spun out long, intricately arched melodies with unassuming tenderness; the unaccompanied cadenza was a small miracle of shapely grace.”
Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle, March 23, 2018

“And Gil Shaham was a magnificent soloist in the concerto, bringing vigor and clarity to the outer movements and a certain clipped lyricism to the paired instrumental arias that serve as a double centerpiece.”
—Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle, June 21, 2013
