Shaham Plays Bach Six Solos
with original films by David Michalek
Sunday, March 1, 2015
Bach's sublime Sonata and Partitas for Solo Violin are among the most technically demanding and emotionally penetrating works he ever composed. 2012 Musical America Instrumentalist of the Year Gil Shaham plays all six tremendous works in one afternoon, accompanied by projections of visual imagery created by artist David Michalek. "The Illinois-born, Israel-bred violinist could give the inimitable Jascha Heifetz a close race in the razzle dazzle department" (Chicago Tribune).
