About This Performance

“[Shaham is] one of the world’s great masters of the instrument” –The Lafayette

Multiple Grammy Award-winning violinist Gil Shaham returns!  Mozart’s Fifth Violin Concerto begins with a sweet melody and ends with hints of military-Turkish music, giving the piece its nickname.  Pulitzer Prize-winning composer George Walker was co-commissioned by the PSO and three other orchestras to write “Strands.”  And, composed when Tchaikovsky accepted his first teaching position at Moscow Conservatory, “Winter Dreams” is one of this Russian composer’s earliest and masterful works.
