(205) 348-8320 (fax) UA Celebrity Series Presents Violinist Gil Shaham TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Internationally-acclaimed violinist Gil Shaham, known for combining musical warmth and elegance with powerful technique, perform at The University of Alabama at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 21, in the Moody Music Building Concert Hall. The performance is part of the 1997-98 Celebrity Series, sponsored by the UA School of Music, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Gloria Narramore Moody Foundation. Tickets for the concert are $25 and $30, and are available from the UA School of Music box office, at 205/348-7111. At age 26, Shaham is praised by music critics and leaders of the world's celebrated symphonic ensembles as a veteran virtuoso of the instrument. A Chicago Tribune music critic, after experiencing a Shaham performance wrote, "He seems poised to become the Itzhak Perlman of his generation. There is in Shaham that same facility for reaching out in a very personal and immediate way to an audience through whatever music he happens to be playing." Another reviewer exuded, "With limitless technical resources, he tosses off the most difficult passages as if they were child's play. Few if any living violinists are as comfortable as Shaham in such a broad spectrum of repertoire."

Associated Press writer NEW YORK For Halloween, Gil Shaham will be the violinist from hell. In time for the holiday, he's put out a CD titled "Devil's Dance." "We're trying to go for the satanic cult audience with this one," he jokes. While the Stradivarius and Satan don't quite go together like soup and sandwich, the 29-year-old classical music star feels the combination isn't such a stretch. Just look at literature and the movies, he suggests. "Do you remember Jack Nicholson as the devil in 'The Witches of Eastwick,' playing a violin with smoke coming out of the instrument?" Shaham asks, adding: "Shakespeare says the devil rides on fiddle sticks. "I know the stories about Paganini, that he'd come to town and seduce some women, kill them and use their guts to string his violin and perform the next night. Of course I don't believe it. He must have promoted it, like some of today's pop stars being outlandish. Talk about a bad-boy image!"

Culminating performances will be called “An Orchestra’s Guide To The Universe,” and feature a plot in which a young person’s imagined voyage through the universe will interrupt an otherwise normal concert. Modeled after the original Concert Curriculum, imagination sequences will be filled with material and performances students have prepared through interdisciplinary curricular units in science and music. The unprecedented collaboration will include RIME Founder and Director Arthur Bloom, Dr. Ilana Harrus, an astronomer at Goddard Space Flight Center/NASA, science educators and writers David S.

Sunday, May 4, 2003 Shaham's Stradivarius diabolically powerful
By Janelle Gelfand
The Cincinnati Enquirer
Violinist Gil Shaham is a musicians' musician - with a dash of the devil. When he began to fly in Ravel's Tzigane - the diabolical showpiece for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra Friday night - you didn't want to miss a note of his breathtaking display. The irrepressible American-Israeli violinist was soloist in the Ravel, as well as Stravinsky's Violin Concerto in D Major, for the CSO's season-concluding program in Music Hall. Music director emeritus Jesus Lopez-Cobos made a return visit to conduct Dvorak's little-played Symphony No. 3 and Cesar Franck's Morc eau symphonique Stravinsky's neo-classical concerto is not of the romantic, virtuoso kind usually heard at the symphony. It is more like chamber music - lean and witty, with spiky harmonies, angular themes and engaging interplay between orchestral players and soloist. The composer took his cue from Bach. Shaham's phrases in the opening "Toccata" were tongue-in-cheek and decisive, and his "attitude" gave the music bite. The violinist gave a glimpse of his 1699 Stradivarius' sweet, golden tone in the middle two "Aria" movements. The second one, in particular, was lovely for Shaham's seamless, arioso-like phrases, flawless intonation and dialogue with the flutes.
