Extractions: While Orli and Gil are less than five years apart in age, they suprisingly have not performed together in public as often as one would suspect. Apparently, their parents discouraged them from doing so, since Orli, as she explains to Fred Child, was "just ready to come out of the sandbox" when Gil was already having a big career. So, instead of tagging along with her big brother, Orli has become a renowned and respected concert pianist in her own right.
Extractions: This Philharmonia safe programme of concert classics opened with a pristine performance of Samuel Barbers Adagio for Strings his most popular and often-performed work. Delivered with a profundity which lent the work even more dignity and pathos than usual, the Philharmonia strings wisely avoided the pitfall of saccharine sound, and David Zinman conducted the elegiac score with reserve and refinement. The internationally acclaimed violinist Gil Shaham gave an extraordinarily sensitive and subtle interpretation of Sir Edward Elgars Violin Concerto in B minor , Op. 61. His purity of tone and poetic phrasing were reminiscent of the celebrated recording made by the 16 year old Menuhin under the direction of the composer. In the Allegro , Shahams assured playing allowed the music to glow and flow with seemingly effortless ease: the notes were crisply delivered, devoid of slurring. Zinman was a perfect, intuitive partner for his soloist and produced expressive, dramatic playing from his forces, particularly from the visceral brass. There was a wonderful vulnerability, almost shyness in his playing of the
Extractions: Print this article Imagine the pressure of being a world-renowned soloist, on stage, in a packed, sold-out orchestra hall, and having your instrument break. Actually, for most of us, this wouldnt be difficult to imagine at all. We are sole suppliers of highly technical products sold in high volumes. Every day, we either perform or. . .well, we PERFORM! I recently watched one of the classical music worlds most sought-after and highly acclaimed violinists, Gil Shaham, at Clevelands Severance Hall. He was performing a highly technical, 12-tone concerto with the touring San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Shaham wasnt just playing any violin. He was playing the 1699 Countess Polignac Stradivarius violin. About halfway through the second movement, the impossible happeneda string broke on the violinists instrument! How the soloist, the conductor and the orchestra responded reminded me of the position many of us are in as sole suppliers to major manufacturers in these days of lean and just-in-time inventory. You cant get much leaner than one instrument per performer, and you certainly can't get more just-in-time than a live performance.
