Gil Shaham, one of the most sought-after violinists in the world and Musical America’s 2011 Instrumentalist of the Year, performs Brahms’ popular Violin Concerto, “fueled by the sort of energy and passion that lifts a performance far above the notes on the page” (Seattle Times). Also on the program is evocative music by the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer George Walker and Sibelius’ Symphony No. 1, a romantic work dotted with wistful allusions to his Finnish homeland.
