Hallowed violin virtuoso Gil Shaham, a Musical America Instrumentalist of the Year and winner of multiple Grammy Awards, appears on the great concert stages and the most prestigious festivals around the world. Here performs Bach’s deeply expressive works for solo violin – perhaps the most challenging music ever written for the instrument. This performance is a newly commissioned multi-media collaboration with visual artist David Michalek, whose mammoth video installations have been projected on outdoor facades at New York’s Lincoln Center and London’s Trafalgar Square.PROGRAMJ.S.
