7:00 PM

Internationally acclaimed violinist Gil Shaham's virtuosity, elegance and soulfulness have made him one of today's most in-demand soloists.

For his latest recording project, he returns to his roots with Nigunim: Hebrew Melodies, an album of Jewish and Jewish-themed music for violin and piano recorded with his sister and frequent musical partner Orli Shaham.

Join the Shahams in The Greene Space, in their only New York recital of the season, for an evening of performance and conversation about the rich and vibrant tradition of Jewish music and its universal appeal today. Featuring performances of music by Ernst Bloch; a new piece commissioned by the Shahams from Avner Dorman; and John Williams’ “Remembrances” from Schindler's List. WQXR's Elliott Forrest hosts.
