ONE NIGHT ONLY SPECIAL!
José Luis Gomez, conductor
Gil Shaham, violin
Glazunov: Overture Solennelle
Rachmaninoff: Vocalise for Orchestra
Tchaikovsky: Romeo and Juliet Overture
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto
Hailed by The New York Times as “One of today’s preeminent violinists,” world renowned Grammy® Award winning virtuoso Gil Shaham makes his Tucson Symphony Orchestra debut performing Tchaikovsky’s breathtakingly beautiful Violin Concerto concluding a program featuring Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff favorites.
“We were lucky: Gil Shaham was the soloist in Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. His was old-school, big-personality, enormously engaging Tchaikovsky playing. Shaham’s oneness with the music won us all over, and after the big first movement cadenza, the audience burst into applause. I’ve never heard that happen before, and I wonder whether Shaham had either.”
