Up Next: Gil Shaham at the Ordway

The Schubert Club presents Gil Shaham, violin in an all Bach program on Sunday, January 8 at 3pm at the Ordway Music Theater as part of its International Artist Series. A multiple Grammy Award-winner and Musical America’s “Instrumentalist of the Year,” Shaham has become well-known for his immaculate Bach presentations.

“It’s hardly news that Shaham is an impeccable violinist, one capable of bringing out the mechanics and the majesty of Bach in equal measure. Still, it was great to be startled all over again by the brilliance of his playing, the penetrating power of his interpretations…Shaham produced a clear and beautifully focused tone, even in the busiest passages.” – Tim Smith, Baltimore Sun
