Gil Shaham, violin, with the UNC Symphony Orchestra and Tonu Kalam, conductor

Tags/Genres Ensembles

One of the foremost musicians of our time, Grammy winner Gil Shaham’s musical athleticism, inimitable warmth and generosity of spirit have solidified his renown as an American master. Sought after on the world’s great concert stages, he has more than two dozen concerto and solo CDs to his name, including bestsellers that have ascended the record charts in the US and abroad. As Carolina Performing Arts’ artist-in-residence for the 2015-16 season, he will appear in three performances and work throughout the year with UNC students and faculty. Here he performs Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D Major—considered one of the most technically demanding works for the violin—with our own UNC Symphony Orchestra led by music director/conductor  Tonu Kalam.
