FROM THE STAGE
St. Louis Symphony First Violin Jessica Cheng on Gil Shaham:
“First of all, he isalways very passionate about what he is playing. You never feel like he’splaying halfway. He’s always at about 200 percent.“He’s also a very nice person, and that counts. As great as he is, there
doesn’t seem to be any ego. I rst played with him when I was about 14. His
Sibelius recording had just come out and I was listening to it all the time. Iremember when I met him I called him ‘Mr. Shaham.’ He said, ‘Please, call me
Gil.’ That made quite an impression on a 14-year-old violinist.
“He always has such a round, rich sound. Playing with him you know there will be a give and take between Gil and the orchestra, but he knows what he wants and what he wants to make out of the sound. He is the soloist,after all, so he comes here with something to say about the music and we want to complement him in every way we can.
Gil Shaham
