Gil Shaham is one of the foremost violinists of our time; his flawless technique combined with his inimitable warmth and generosity of spirit has critics fawning over the “special kind of humanism” with which his performances are imbued. The Internationally celebrated violinist appears in recital with pianist Akira Eguchi in an enchanting program featuring Avner Dorman’s Nigunim, a work commissioned in 2011 by Gil, his sister pianist Orli Shaham, and the 92nd Street Y for their Hebrew Melodies project.
