#PartnerEvents: New World Symphony & Renowned Violinist Gil Shaham

"One of today's preeminent violinists." – The New York Times

New World Symphony: Gil Shaham Plays Brahms
October 26 @ 8 p.m. | Knight Concert Hall
Michael Tilson Thomas, conductor
Gil Shaham, violin
Chad Goodman, conductor

SCHUMANN Overture to The Bride of Messina
BERG Three Pieces for Orchestra
BRAHMS Violin Concerto
Michael Tilson Thomas opens the New World Symphony's Arsht Center series
with an exclusive evening featuring works by music's defining Romantics.

Hailed by Time magazine as "the outstanding American violinist of his generation," Gil Shaham brings captivating lyricism and Gypsy flair to Johannes Brahms' only violin concerto with a "transfixing array of finesse and grit" ( Orange County Register). Alban Berg's Three Pieces for Orchestra—what the composer called a "fictitious symphony"—is a kaleidoscope of vivid colors and textures, and contains nods to Gustav Mahler throughout. Robert Schumann's tumultuous overture forms the dramatic start to this unforgettable evening.  |  305.949.6722
