Gil Shaham

  • February 19, 1971 Urbana (United States)

Biography

Born in 1971 in Urbana, Gil Shaham is one of the greatest violinists of his generation. At the age of two, his family settled in Israel where Gil Shaham learned the violin in Jerusalem with Samuel Bernstein. He made his debut as a child conducted by Zubin Mehta and stunned the Israeli public with the confidence conveyed by an already mature art. His first teachers put him in good stead for the Julliard School in New York where for nine years Dorothy DeLay taught him to ally a fabulously masterful technique with demanding musical art in every repertoire he turned to. He completed his chamber music tuition with Felix Galimir and received advice from Isaac Stern who passed on his musical knowledge, notably in the interpretation of the Brahms Violin Concerto.
